Winter vacation week is traditionally a time for rest and relaxation, but for many local students and Transfiguration parishioners it was a time for giving. A group of volunteers from both sites at Transfiguration Parish spent time during the school break preparing and serving a meal for Bethany House in Troy. The Bethany Hospitality Center merged with Unity House in 2012 and is now known as Bethany @ Unity. The resource center serves a diverse population of people affected by financial struggles. Additionally, they offer community meals and a variety of other human service resources for area residents.
