Kingston Cares serving up pasta with a side of compassion

KINGSTON — Donations collected during a free dinner 5 p.m. Sept. 29 at Village Green Community Center will benefit Kingston Cares.

The dinner of spaghetti, salad and bread will be provided by The Point Casino. A raffle will also take place; prizes include a Seahawks jacket. Raffle tickets are $5 each.

Stan J. Mack is president of Kingston Cares, the local volunteer group which helps to operate a severe weather shelter in cooperation with the county Department of Emergency Management. The group also operates the Food4Kids program.

During periods of inclement weather, Mack said, area residents can use the severe weather shelter if their houses lack adequate heating or protection from the elements.

The Food4Kids program, as its name would suggest, provides food for children by filling in the nutritional gaps left by breaks in school. The program focuses primarily on students who rely on free or reduced lunches; the program also offers meals for students during summer, winter and spring breaks. Food4Kids works with ShareNet to provide meals for children during weekends as well.

The Village Green Community Center is located at 26159 Dulay Road NE, Kingston.
