Tim Oloffson (from left), executive director of Another Child Foundation, presents a donation to the Bureau Valley Buddy Bag program in Manlius. Accepting the donation are Mary Hartz, Karen Hansen, Carole Novak and Lori Gustafson. The Bureau Valley program serves 45 children. Pastor Brenda Lovick, Bureau Valley Buddy Bags volunteer, said “The money provided by the farmer, through Another Child, will support our organization by allowing us to purchase non-perishable food items at the cheapest expense, either through the local food bank or with coupons and discounts that we use at local supermarkets.”
