SCHENECTADY – On Sunday, volunteers with Street Soldiers were at Zion Lutheran Church in Schenectady, offering pantry foods, hot foods, personal hygiene products and more to the homeless within the Schenectady community.

The occasion marked the 100th consecutive Sunday afternoon of such efforts in the city.

The Street Soldiers program began in 2016, founded by Renee and Mike Fahey to provide hot meals and essentials to the homeless and the less fortunate.

The grassroots program currently serves Albany, Troy and Schenectady.
