How Pine Knolls reaches out Locally.

Nestled at the foothills of the Adirondacks, the surrounding community of Pine Knolls is beautiful place to live. But within our own neighborhoods there’s work to be done. We partner with these local organizations to better meet the physical and spiritual needs of those right here in our backyard.

Kyle has been working for Young Life since 2009 in roles at Saranac Village Young Life Camp before joining field staff in Southern ADK in 2012. Kyle is married to Erin and they are both thrilled to be raising their two kids, Lucy and Peter, in the Southern Adirondacks.

Pine Knolls Food Pantry is located on site at The Potter’s House, and is open every Saturday from 9-10:30am. Through a partnership with the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, our food pantry provides food to over 200 families in the community every week of the year. It is our hope to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of our community with the love of Christ. There is no cost or membership requirement to receive assistance.
