The Lenten season of prayer, fasting, and charity is upon Christians and the Delmar Reformed Church community has chosen to honor this holy time of year by “feeding the fish” and supporting Living Resources.

Each year, the church chooses a local non-profit organization as the beneficiary of its Lenten Fish Bank Fundraiser. Orange banks, shaped like fish, are offered to members of their congregation. Those interested in donating or collecting contributions take a bank at the beginning of Lent and return it shortly after Easter, with change, cash, or checks inside.

For years now, individuals supported through our Albany County-based Day Community Opportunities Program have been welcomed into the Delmar Reformed Church during the week. The church has served as a reliable location where they can take part in activities and other programming.

Pastor Jake Chipka shares, “This wonderful relationship is one of the reasons why the church community felt that Living Resources would be the perfect fit for our almsgiving season.”

We are honored to be a part of this wonderful tradition and sincerely grateful for the continued partnership and support!
