The Times Union reported that Equinox, which has provided Thanksgiving Day meals for 50 years to individuals in need in the Capital Region, has had to come up with alternate plans in the face of COVID-19. With the traditional cooking operation and in-person dinner not possible this year, the organization has turned to local organizations and restaurants to meet the need.
“It has always been the mission of St. Peter’s to be a compassionate and healing presence in our community, and it is one that I know Equinox shares. A dedication to community health is the cornerstone of what we do; it is a mutual dedication to helping communities when they are at their most vulnerable and in need,” said Katherine DeRosa, vice president of mission services for St. Peter’s Health Partners. “St. Peter’s is pleased to provide $10,000 to the effort, with $5,000 coming from our Community Health & Well Being division, and another $5,000 from St. Peter’s Hospital Foundation. We are grateful our donation helps support Equinox in their effort to provide our lonely, homebound, or homeless neighbors with a hot meal this Thanksgiving holiday.”
