Lights on the River Announces 2012 Food Pantries

For the past 2 years, Lights on the River has supported 9 different food pantries with donations totaling over $16,000 in cash plus cases and cases of food, all received from the annual holiday light display held at Lisbon Beach. This year, Lights on the River will continue to support the local food pantries.

This year’s list of local food pantries that Lights on the River is looking to help are:

  • Canton Church & Community Program

  • Hammond Neighborhood Center
  • Heuvelton Food Pantry
  • Lisbon Food Pantry
  • Madrid’s Christian Fellowship Center – Alms of Love Pantry
  • Ogdensburg Neighborhood Center
  • Ogdensburg Salvation Army
  • Waddington Neighborhood Center

The 3rd annual Lights on the River, sponsored in part by Ogdensburg Kiwanis, will take place from Saturday, December 15th through Sunday, December 23rd. It’s a free drive through event that attracts thousands from Northern New York & Southeastern Ontario, as well as those visiting the area for the holidays.

Lights on the River, Inc. is a local 501(c)(3) charity whose mission is to help local food pantries. With the community’s support, Lights on the River has become such a great event for friends & families throughout the area to enjoy.
