I want to express immense gratitude to a special group of young people who, despite the ever-changing challenges they’ve faced over the past year at school and home, put their thinking caps on, rolled up their sleeves, and planned and executed a community event that will directly benefit their neighbors.
Colonie Central High School’s iCARE group exists to give a voice to the voiceless. Their recent Chili Cook-Off drive-thru not only raised funds for the programs and services provided by Northern Rivers Family of Services, but also helped us bring awareness to our behavioral health services — something folks don’t often want to talk about. Thank you for giving us a voice!
Additionally, we’d like to thank all of the volunteers who donated their time and culinary skills that chilly afternoon, and the South Colonie School District for always supporting iCARE’s efforts.
