2020 Starts with Dollars for Scholars

On the eve of Valentine’s Day 2020, we experienced another inspiring meeting filled with love and hope when we heard about more charities in the Capital District doing such amazing work!

The meeting started with member Donna Elia, executive director of TAUM, sharing the progress that has been made for the furniture addition. Our charitiable giving from Novemebr 2019 ($18,000) has already been put to use as they have full engineering plans for the addition and expect the building of the addition to begin this spring.

Three great local charities were selected for nomination/presentation at this meeting:

  • Capital Region Miracle League:  They developed the first multi-sport facility in the US designed specifically for special needs athletes. The field plays host to baseball, football, soccer and track & field, and provides a full-service athletic home for the Capital Region’s special needs-athletes.
  • RISSE-Refugee and Immigrant Services: This organization helps equip refugees and recent immigrants to build sustainable, independent lives by offering language and literacy instruction, as well as support with life skills and integration into U.S. culture and communities.
  • Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar: This organization inspires and empowers promising, underserved students to succeed in high school, college and life.

Congratulations to our recipient, Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar! They will use our dollars to fund additional scholars continuing their mission to support under served students in their quest for a successful future.

We welcomed eleven new members at this meeting. We’d love to have you join us at our next meeting on Thursday, May 14, 2020. Check in 5-5:30, meeting 5:30-6:30 in the Fellowship Hall, Delmar Reformed Church, 386 Delaware Ave, Delmar, NY. Learn more about our next meeting.
