Members of the Union Center Christian Church have also recently donated. “The homeless population, the helpless population, those who are down on their luck. Really anybody that needs our services we’re available to serve,” said Captain Joseph Hansen. Some of the businesses who have donated so far include Cracker Barrel, Ruby Tuesday, Traditions, Bimbos Bakeries. “We know that it’s impacting families who have lost jobs or have been laid off, so we know it’s impacted them but it’s nice to be able to give them a ray of hope in that we can be able to provide them with some food,” said Hansen. “We’re used to getting to know our clients, being with them, just getting to know them and showing them that they’re loved and they’re cared for,” said Hansen. “We couldn’t do this without the community support and we’ve had lots of restaurants step up to give us some produce and other foods so we could continue our mission,” said Hansen. “We’re always dependent on our donors to help us throughout the year. It’s really nothing new to us that the community would step up and really support us during a time when it’s the most needed,” said Hansen. Since the coronavirus pandemic, Hansen says the Salvation Army has seen three times more people walking through its doors. Despite serving more people, the organization has had to make changes and even some cuts to its programs– a reality that hurts. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Salvation Army of Binghamton’s mission is to meet human needs. That can be a little tough during this time, but its still doing everything it can. The organization helps some of the people who need it most in our area, mostly addressing food insecurity. It’s still operating its soup kitchen as takeout only and its food pantry is contactless.
Travis d’Arnaud was a top-20 prospect and expected to be the Mets’ long-term answer at catcher when they acquired him from Toronto in a blockbuster 2012 trade.A mixture of injuries and regression at the plate have long since dropped him from potential star to afterthought. He was signed midseason this year by the Rays after the Dodgers cut him.

Now, he has nine home runs and the second-best slugging percentage of his disappointing career thus far.Even if this level of play doesn’t keep up, d’Arnaud’s night in New York will be a favorite obscure reference among baseball fans for the remainder of his career. Despite his low profile and minimal expectations at this point in his career, d’Arnaud delivered a surprise power onslaught at Yankee Stadium on Monday, hitting three home runs and producing all five RBIs in a 5-4 Rays victory.After the game, he told reporters it was the “coolest night ever” in his career. Hitting a go-ahead home run against Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman — with two outs and two strikes no less — makes that statement believable.
