On this Giving Tuesday – the United Way of the Mohawk Valley and greater Utica area is partnering with Mohawk Valley Community College and Meals of Hope to pack 50,000 meals for those in need in Oneida and Herkimer counties.

New York’s version "New York Gives Day" engages many nonprofits to work together.

Meal packing got under way at about 10 a.m. Tuesday morning and wrapped up at noon.

“Everyone in this community knows just how great people in this community can be when it comes to giving back. They never let us down. We have people from different companies who fundraise with us throughout the year at United Way and people who have never been with us before,” said Kristyn Bucciero Beckwith, the head of marketing at the local United Way chapter.

The food goes to families who need it this time of year.

There were 140 volunteers, and half of them are from MVCC, serving 48,000 meals in total.
