Commodore John Barry Division 1 in Saratoga Springs had a very busy holiday season raising funds for various charities. Pictured below is Ed Kelley of Division 1, AOH in Saratoga Springs, presenting a check from various fall fund raisers to Tony Zanella of the ECHO Food Pantry in Rock City Falls. The pantry is a member of the Regional Food Bank which has been helping to feed the poor and hungry in our communities since 1982. It is the only organization of its kind in northeastern New York and collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes it to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people.
Additional fund raising activities also allowed the division to provide a much-needed charitable contribution to Mary’s Haven Hospice Service in Saratoga Springs. Below Ed Kelley of Commodore John Barry Division 1 presents check to Robin Byrt of Mary’s Haven Hospice Service.
