AFE Donates $5,000 for Feed and Read Weekend Backpack Program

Albany Fund for Education Executive Director Mari Shopsis presents a check for $5,000 to HATAS (Homeless and Travelers Aid Society) Executive Director Liz Hitt. AFE continues to support HATAS and the important Feed and Read weekend backpack program, which provides 590 Albany students with a backpack of food and a new book each weekend. This program ensures that they come to school on Mondays ready to focus on learning, not lunch. 

Increased food costs may impact the amount of food we are able to provide this year. To help make sure this vital program continues, consider sponsoring a student with a donation of $300 or a monthly donation of $25.
