On August 8, 2019 we held another great meeting with a room full of energy and eight new faces!
Corrine Paeglow, office administrator for Koinonia Primary Care, our last quarter’s charity, stated how grateful they were to receive funds totaling $17,800. They are purchasing blood machines, improving their handicap access and lobby, as well as using some funds for computer services.
The excellent charities nominated at this meeting were:
- Community Hospice of the Capital District: Their services are designed to help patients maximize control over their lives with comprehensive, compassionate services that respect the dignity of those they serve.
- Vanderheyden: Their mission is to empower youth, adults and families to build brighter futures.
- Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region: Girls Incorporated inspires all girls to be strong, smart and bold. They are committed to helping girls build skills and capabilities for a responsible, confident and self-sufficient adulthood.
Congratulations to our August recipient, Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region, who will be using the funds to help renovate their new location on lower Washington Ave. in Albany. An added plus, they share part of the facility with Senior Services, another non-profits in Albany.
