A trunkful of donations as of Thursday evening, but we need more before August 19.

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 2.07.33 PMWe’re midway through our annual “School Supplies Drive” and doing well so far. We’re hoping every SRC member will donate something large or small to help needy students in the Rensselaer, Schodack, and East Greenbush school districts.

The deadline for contributions is August 19. You can drop off items you have purchased from the suggested shopping list at the Greenbush YMCA during its regular hours, or at one of two upcoming “SRC Summer Casual” events —  the August 12 “Sundaes On Sunday” event at Debbie Rodriguez’s residence, and the August 16 “Clubhouse Get-Together” at  The Spinney at Pond View clubhouse in East Greenbush.
