BALLSTON SPA — This week, a group of volunteers convened at the warehouse of Living Water Services to unload a “filled to the brim” van full of food donations for the New York Race Track Chaplaincy. 

The food is part of a larger donation to the chaplaincy at Belmont to support the backstretch community at Belmont & Aqueduct racetracks, and which was sent to Saratoga to support the 34 families of the backstretch community who live and work in the Saratoga area year-round. 

The food will be stored locally, and families will come, one-by-one, over the weeks ahead to “shop” from the available supplies. 

To donate visit www.rtcany.org.
