HRCCU Helps Donate Meals to Local Families Affected by COVID-19

Hudson River Community Credit Union (HRCCU) staff members, with the help of Corinth Central Schools, is set to donate $2,000 in meals to local families who have been impacted by COVID-19.

Partnering with Ball Corporation and Saratoga County Capital Resource Corporation, HRCCU will help to distribute meals in the form of gift cards to families living in Corinth, New York.

The donation comes as part of the company’s Give to Dine program and the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce’s Save Our Locals program.

Supporting Local Businesses & Helping Local Families

Andrea Miele of Ball Corporation and Todd Shimkus of Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce presented HRCCU with the check for $1,500. Saratoga County Capital Resource Corporation also donated an additional $500 to the program, bringing the total support to $2,000.

HRCCU will use the funds to purchase $25 gift certificates from popular local restaurants including Rocco’s Pizzeria, Amore Italy Pizza, Biscuits Bakery, and Gold Dragon Chinese Restaurant.

Dr. Mark Stratton, Superintendent of the Corinth Central School District, will work with HRCCU to identify and distribute the gift certificates to 80 families living in the school district who are most in need of support.

Ball Corporation and Saratoga County Capital Resource Corporation’s generous donations will allow HRCCU to continue its efforts to provide local families with much-needed food assistance and a direct benefit to support local restaurants affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Sue Commanda, CEO of Hudson River Community Credit Union.

“This is a win-win for both our local families and restaurants. We are thankful to Ball Corporation, Saratoga County Capital Resource Corporation, and the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce for their generous and thoughtful contribution to our community. We also want to thank Dr. Stratton for his assistance in ensuring we provide the support to families that are most in need,” Commanda continued.

The Give to Dine donation comes after HRCCU and Corinth CSD in partnership with Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York held food drives at Corinth Elementary School in the spring and summer of 2020 to provide much-needed food assistance to families living in northern Saratoga County.
