Dorothy Nolan Teachers vs. Greenfield FD For a Great Cause
SARATOGA SPRINGS – The basketball bleachers at Saratoga Springs High School were packed to the rafters as the staff of Dorothy Nolan Elementary School took on their arch-rivals Greenfield Fire Department for a great cause: Their annual Helping Hoops Basketball Game, at the Saratoga Springs High School on Friday, May 6 at 7 p.m.
While this was a tremendous opportunity for young students to see their teachers ‘strut their stuff’ in tye-dye, all who participated were there for an excellent cause – one that benefits student’s health, nutrition and well-being.
The proceeds from this event will go to the SNACPack program, which was founded by Dorothy Nolan alum Richard Martinez, and who was on hand to participate.
The SNACPack program is designed to meet the needs of hungry children on weekends, when other resources are not available. The program provides backpacks filled with food that is child-friendly, shelf-stable, and easily-consumed. Bags are packed each week by volunteers and discreetly distributed to participating children every Friday afternoon.
