Collecting surplus produce

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - If you have extra produce from your garden, you can bring it to the New Way Assembly of God Church in Watertown.

It is collecting surplus produce to give to Samaritan Keep Home Adult Day Care center.

It will be accepting donations during services Saturday, and at 10 a.m. at the church on Wednesday the 21st.

Girls ministries leader Randi McCarthy says her group has been planning the collection.

“We thought it would be very nice to, at the harvest time, to give to those that can’t plant gardens anymore. That can’t get out and get the fresh produce that is very good for us,” said McCarthy.

The girls ministries will be delivering the fresh produce to Samaritan next week.
