SARATOGA SPRINGS — Youth2: Youth Helping Youth is partnering with SNACpack for their first “Pop-UP” to light a beacon of hope in Saratoga Springs.
The Pop-UP will provide warm socks and toothbrushes for children and teens ages 6-18. The drop off location is St. Clement’s Church Parking Lot, 231 Lake Ave, Saratoga Springs – look for the sign. The Pop-UP will continue, rain or shine, and will take place on Thursday, March 25, from 3-5 p.m. The drop off is completely COVID-safe – you don’t need to leave your car.
In response to the necessities of the changing times, Youth2 hopes to create pop-ups that will provide the community in need with warm socks, toothbrushes, bus passes and more. Youth2 is reaching out to community organizations in and around Saratoga Springs who might want a Community Care Pop UP for their own.
Youth2 is an organization based in Saratoga Springs (under the care of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region) that consists of youth and adults coming together to work towards a brighter future in their community and beyond.
SNACpack started six years ago to provide children living in food-insecure homes with meals to sustain them over weekends and throughout the summer. The program is currently helping 260 K-12 students in the Saratoga Springs School District, weekly.
These Pop-UP events are hands-on ways to help our community. By caring for our community and having a sense of responsibility towards one another, we can all put our hands together and make an impact.
