Hodges said it is unfortunate that so many people attend the Wednesday feedings, and that they are "regular families and businessmen who are just having a hard time making it," but that he is very happy that the three men could make a difference for the church, at least for a little while.
He also called out to Gov. David Paterson to visit the church, especially on a Wednesday, and reconsider making cuts to the program that feeds so many families in Albany.
While this was Hodges first local charity event, he said his work is not done yet.
The three men plan to come together once again to kick off a canned food drive for foods with a longer shelf life to benefit local organizations.
Hodges said he is working on getting grocery stores involved in the drop-off of the canned goods, but that he would appreciate can donations as soon as possible to be made at the following locations: Con-Rel Auto Electric, 3637 Carman Road, Guilderland 12303 (next to Carman Wine and Liquor) or Jezereel International, 18 Kairnes St., Colonie 12205.
