Giving Back!

On September 27th the Albany Hindu Temple handed over the funds raised during Shree Ganesh Festival to the Executive Director of Boys and Girls Club of Southern Rensselaer County.

The team of coordinators met with Rick Van Vorst, the Executive Director, and received an overview of the club facility and the operations. It was very refreshing to see the club making strides to enrich the lives of young boys and girls in the community. From art center, to home work assistance, cooking classes, wood working sessions, computer labs, free meals and a variety of sports clinics it is amazing the club is run almost exclusively by volunteers and a few staff members. We sincerely thank Rick for giving us a sneak peek into their operations and giving us a sense of comfort that our small contribution would be put to good use. We feel happy and proud that the temple is supporting such a good cause.

This initiative was successful because of the support for our Board of Trustees and most importantly the support of everyone who donated generously for the cause. We are very grateful to be surrounded by so many generous hearts and we thank you all for your support.
