Seven decades since war’s end, stories of women vets often untold
Seventy years ago this past summer, World War II came to an end. Some 16.1 million Americans served in the war between Dec. 1, 1941, and Dec. 31, 1946. Often forgotten among that number are 350,000 women, all volunteers who signed up to join the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Marines and Nurse Corps after 1942.

Food Bank of CNY’s Food $en$e program offers grocery packages for $15.50
Linda Davis and her husband don’t get out much. “If Phoenix and Baldwinsville fell off the map, I’d be gone,” Davis said. “I really don’t leave the area.” The couple is also on a fixed income. That’s why, for the last 20 years, they’ve taken advantage of the Food Bank of Central New York’s Food $en$e program, a monthly food distribution program for individuals and families who want help stretching their monthly food budget, like the Davises. Once a month, people who want to participate sign up at the host site near their home, pre-paying $15.50 in cash or food stamps for the food package. Later in the month, when the food package is ready to be picked up, the customers return to the same site for their delivery.
If your heart and home are big enough to accommodate a Legend, call the CNYSPCA at 454-4479.

If you’d like to be his teacher, call the CNYSPCA at 454-4479 and meet the wonderful Rufus!
