Community Heroes Alert! The Town of Clifton Park held a school supply drive this past weekend and it was very successful!

Thank you to everyone who dropped off school supplies and to the Town for hosting this wonderful event and all of your ongoing support for kids, families, and seniors in our community!

This year, Jersey Mike's Day of Giving brought in over $80,000 in donations to support CAPTAIN CHS's homeless and runaway youth programs. Although this year was record-breaking, the partnership between Jersey Mike's and CAPTAIN CHS has long impacted our community. Check out a wonderful video produced by Emotivo Productions and highlighting the work Jersey Mike's and its customers have made possible.

Thank you to Kohl's for donating 1,346 products from the Lauren Conrad Beauty line! When times are tough, beauty products are often one of the first things to go in the budget. This is especially true for homeless families and youth. Many of the teens we help at our Runaway and Homeless Youth Center have nothing but the clothes on their back when they arrive. From our programs for homeless teens to our supportive housing apartments to our holiday Toy Shop to our food pantry, these products will go a long way to raising spirits during these challenging times!

A huge thank you to the Saratoga County Sheriff's Department who came to talk with our Peace Camp kids about being a Police Officer and brought their special K9 Officer along. The kids LOVED the K9 Officer and I must admit we did try to keep him as a employee of the camp!
