A pair of Lockport organizations got a boost thanks to Cornerstone CFCU's second annual "Causal for a Cause" summer fundraising drive.

This year, participating employees made a donation and nominated a charity for the opportunity to wear jeans on Fridays during the summer. With majority of the staff participating, $2,200 was raised with the money split between Lockport CARES and the Sister Mary Loretto Soup Kitchen.

Lockport CARES was nominated by employees Ann Hood and Pat McCabe. Lockport CARES operates an emergency homeless shelter serving the needs of greater Niagara County as well as a separate transitional housing and recovery program for men (Kahler House). To donate or learn more about this organization visit LockportCARES.org.

Employees Nancy Baes and Mary Scheib nominated the Sister Mary Loretto Soup Kitchen, which is run out of the Lockport Salvation Army.

According to Major Jose Santiago of the Salvation Army, the soup kitchen serves 110-120 meals each week day and 100% of the money donated to soup kitchen goes to providing meals. That’s about 30,000 meals a year to the less fortunate of our community. For more information, call the Lockport Salvation Army at 434-1276 or visit salvationarmyempirestate.org.
