CORINTH — Hudson River Community Credit Union (HRCCU) announced that Ball Corp. and Saratoga County Capital Resource Corp. will donate $2,000 in meals to families living in Corinth, as part of Ball’s ‘Give to Dine’ program and the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce’s ‘Save Our Locals’ program.
On Wednesday, March 10, Andrea Miele of Ball Corporation and Todd Shimkus of Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce presented HRCCU with a check for $1,500. Saratoga County Capital Resource Corporation also donated an additional $500 to the program bringing the total support to $2,000. HRCCU will use the funds to purchase $25 gift certificates from local restaurants, and will then work with Dr. Mark Stratton, Superintendent of the Corinth Central School District, to identify and distribute the gift certificates to 80 families living in the school district that are most in need of support.
The donation comes after HRCCU and Corinth CSD in partnership with Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York held food drives at Corinth Elementary School in the spring and summer of 2020 to provide much needed food assistance to families living in Northern Saratoga County.
