The Giving Circle, Inc., an all volunteer local charity based in Saratoga Springs, will be holding a donation drive at the Saratoga Peace Fair on Sunday, September 25th from 12:00 A.M. to 4:00 pm at the New England Presbyterian Congregational Church on West Circular Street. The Donation Drive is to collect needed items to help our neighbors in Schoharie County rebuild their lives in the wake of the horrible flooding that resulted
from Hurricane Irene. There will be a moving van parked at the PEACE Fair that will be clearly marked for donation drop offs.
On Friday, September 23rd the Giving Circle will be leading a team to Schoharie to help residents with shoveling out basements, tearing down walls and insulation and other needed tasks. If you want to volunteer for this work day or would like more information please contact Ron Deutsch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 469-6769. We will leave Saratoga at 8:15 am and return by 5:00 PM. You can sign up to volunteer for work weekends at the Giving Circle Booth at the Peace Fair on Sunday September 25th. You can also learn more about the Giving Circle and sign up on their FRIENDS OF THE GIVING CIRCLE E-LIST by going to their website at www.thegivingcircle.org.
