A joint effort was conducted by the Family Health Network, Cortland Loaves & Fishes, and Homer Men and Boys to help those who are homeless be able to stay warm though the extreme cold that took place last Friday.
A donation made from Homer Men and Boys of 3 dozen pairs of thermal socks, and 26 winter hats were bagged up and delivered to the Cortland Loaves and Fishes from representatives at the Family Health Network.
Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Douglas Rahner, was the one to facilitate the effort to help those who are homeless stay warm.
The Family Health Network has been providing health care to the homeless population of Cortland and for those who have very limited access to health care through the organization’s new Mobile Medical Unit during visits to the Loaves and Fishes.
The medical unit will be again visiting the Loaves and Fishes next Thursday, February 16th from 10am to 1pm.
