Soup for Seniors
Soup for Seniors is a free door-to-door meal delivery to senior citizens in the local Capital District. Since 2009, over 17,000 meals have been delivered. Adult and student volunteers from Redemption Christian Academy, assemble and deliver over 300 meals each time.

As we all adjust to the present crisis, we continue being a resource to our community by providing hot, nutritious meals to those in need.
Every Tuesday, since April 21st between the hours of 4-6pm, RCO has been delivering and serving curbside approximately 300 dinners at 1511 6th Ave. Watervliet, NY 12189.
Care packages are prepared as small gift packs and distributed to the homeless and needy in the community. These care packages contain personal hygiene items, a small clothing item such as socks, a may include water and a snack.
