“We really tried to meet the needs of our community right now, with so many people being unemployed,” said Loretta Hudy, the director of faith formation for the church. “Even within our own church community we have felt it, so whatever we can do, our parishioners have really stepped up.” For food pantry staff, putting their energy into doing good for the community finds its way back to them. Tuesday morning, the bus stopped at Mother Teresa’s Cupboard, a local food pantry on Garfield Avenue in Endicott. Volunteers From Catholic Charities of Broome County helped unload all of the food, sort it and finally put it away on the pantry shelves. Hudy said the church regularly works with Mother Teresa’s, but because of the ongoing pandemic, they felt it was important to go above and beyond. “Every time I give and do a good thing and help people, something from somewhere comes and helps me,” said Cheryl Langevin. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — One local community is finding faith in each other as members of the Church of the Holy Family donated a bus load of food to Mother Teresa’s Cupboard Tuesday. For two to three weeks, parishioners have been dropping off non-perishable goods to the church. From there, the goods were loaded up onto a bus until it was completely filled. For people involved with the project, the act of service is all about helping their larger community. If you would like to volunteer at the food pantry, please call Catholic Charities of Broome County at 607-729-9166.
(BBC) -The Williams Formula 1 team and wider company group are up for sale after posting a £13M loss last year.The momentous decision marks a major change in direction for a company whose founder Sir Frank Williams had previously always insisted on retaining control.Deputy team principal Claire Williams said: “Frank has always ensured he puts the team, business and our people first, and that’s what we’re doing now.”She said the aim was to secure the team’s future through internal investment.Sir Frank, 78, is no longer involved in the day-to-day running of the team.Claire Williams said: “Frank is always aware of and up to speed with every decision the board takes and is supportive.“He wants to ensure the future success of his team and understands and agrees this is the right time to seek inward investment to achieve that.”The company said in a statement that they were considering “various strategic options … including but not limited to raising new capital for the business, a divestment of a minority stake in Williams Grand Prix Holdings, or a divestment of a majority stake in WGPH including a potential sale of the whole company”.It said the company was “not in receipt of any approaches at the time of this announcement” but said it was “in preliminary discussions with a small number of parties regarding a potential investment”.Claire Williams said in a conference call that the aim was to complete the process “within the next three to four months, but we are fully funded throughout the remainder of this year”.Asked if the company was at risk if the team could not be sold, Claire Williams said, “I have every confidence we will find the investment we need.”Managing director Mike O’Driscoll said there were “no prescribed outcomes” and that a “whole sale is just one option”.The move comes in the wake of Williams finishing last in the constructors’ championship for the second year in succession in 2019, leading to a significant drop in income.She said she believed the introduction of a budget cap from 2021 and new regulations aimed at levelling the field from 2022 made the team an attractive opportunity.She said she was “very confident about this team’s future and our ability to succeed in our sport again because the environment in which we can compete is changing”.She said there was “no one key factor” in the decision to put the company up for sale but the coronavirus crisis was a contributor.F1 is facing a significant loss of income as a result of the lack of racing this year, with all major revenue streams under threat.The sport is aiming to start a curtailed season in Austria at the beginning of July.Williams also announced that they had terminated their relationship with their title sponsor, the mobile phone company Rokit, with immediate effect.Williams, one of the most successful teams in F1 history, dominated large swathes of the 1980s and 1990s, winning multiple championships with the likes of Alan Jones, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost and Damon Hill.But competitiveness has declined this century. Williams went through a brief renaissance from 2014 to 17, when they finished third twice and then fifth twice, but fell to the back in the last two years.
