UTICA, N.Y. -- The Utica Comets, Utica City Football Club and Cree gave back to the community Monday by donating to the Johnson Park Center.
The teams provided items like washcloths, sheets and kitchen items for the women and children in the Johnson Park Apartments.
"You know we work with the homeless and when they come, they have absolutely nothing. And so, these items and gifts today that were given out to our program participants and as well as in our Johnson Park Apartments will help them in being able to get their houses together and have the things that they need," said the Rev. Maria Scates.
The Johnson Park Center offers other services like youth programs, mentoring, community development and special needs housing.
