Rural Outreach Center Turns to Public for Help Meeting Financial Challenge

Rural Outreach Center Turns to Public for Help Meeting Financial Challenge

 

Would it shock you to know that nearly 20 percent of the rural population of Western New York lives in poverty? 

It not a surprise to Frank Cerny, executive director of the Rural Outreach Center (ROC) and pastor of Pathways Christian Fellowship in South Wales. That’s because Pastor Cerny and the staff and volunteers at the ROC work every day to offer free medical care for the uninsured, home appliances and furniture for those without the means to pay for such “luxury” items, a Weekend Snack Pack program for students who may not receive a nutritious meal at home, and much more. They also supply the basic necessities of life — such as toiletries — to those who often do without.
