UTICA, NY – Johnson Park Community Center is doing their best to make sure everyone has a happy, stress-free, holiday.

On Monday, residents were able to register for the center’s Christmas present distribution, as well as receive free food and cloth face masks so families could enjoy their Thanksgiving together safely.

Cars lined up around the block on West Street to receive such food items as chicken, pasta, juice, and eggs.

Leroy Peak, a supervisor at Johnson Park Community Center, says providing these items means people have one less thing to worry about during some already stressful times.

“There’s enough for people to worry about with the pandemic and flu season, this way they are provided the food. Everybody should be able to relax during the holiday time and come together with their loved ones.”

Johnson Park Community Center has another food and mask distribution – this time for walkers – scheduled for Tuesday, November 24 from 3 pm to 6 pm along the 1400 block of West Street.

You can also sign up for Christmas present registration from 1 to 6 pm.
