THANK YOU FOR JOINING US ON 5.18 DAY!
TOGETHER, we completed more than 50 virtual/in-person service projects; collected over 1,500 essential baby items from community donations for our Women United Community-Wide Baby Shower and 5,000 pounds of baby food from Beech-Nut; then we delivered 518 meals from Feed Albany and Cookie Therapy ALB to frontline employees at Albany Med. All funds raised supported our Capital Region Community COVID-19 Response Fund to help our neighbors who are facing challenges right now.
