Valatie, N.Y. - On Monday, Congressman John Faso (NY-19) honored Donald and Sharon Campbell with a plaque that contained his remarks from the floor of the House of Representatives which recognizes the couple’s active participation for more than a dozen years at the Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry, a ministry of the Ichabod Crane Clergy Association in Columbia County.
Full Remarks from November 8, 2017:
Mr. FASO. Mr. Speaker, today I rise to thank Donald and Sharon
Campbell, who have actively volunteered for more than a dozen years at
the Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry, a ministry of the Ichabod Crane
Clergy Association in Columbia County.
With Don serving as chairman from 2006 to 2017, the leadership of
these two honorable individuals has enabled the food pantry to serve
hundreds of families in northern Columbia County. Utilizing grants,
community donations, local farms and markets, the Campbells have truly
supported their less-fortunate neighbors, enabling those folks to
better support their families and loved ones.
Don and Sharon's efforts extend beyond the food pantry, aiding many
other charitable pursuits in our community. We thank them as well as
the volunteers of the Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry for their gracious
service to our Columbia County community.
