Rick Hanavan, Board President of FISH of East Aurora: Rick told us about FISH and what they do. Fish has been around for 42 years and supplies food and clothing to low income families from the towns of Aurora, Elma, Marilla, Wales and Holland. They have 72 volunteers and one paid director to meet the needs of the families with dignity and respect. They are open Tuesdays and Thursdays to drop off food, clothing and small household items, linens. They also aid with social service applications. They provide diapers, formula, toys at Christmas, senior gift bags, birthday bags, school supplies and backpacks. They provide referrals for furniture and appliances. They also provide satellite office space for diverse services such as WIC, insurance companies and ROC. They are always looking for donations of food items, clothing and household items.
