ALBANY, N.Y. -- Senior Services of Albany is getting a financial boost, thanks to the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge and the Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club. The organization was one of the charities chosen to receive money raised from the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge event.
A check of $10,000 was given to the Senior Services of Albany to help support its Meals on Wheels program.
Nearly a thousand meals are delivered to 500 people each day. The organization says it costs $1.5 million each year to run the Meals on Wheels program and it's only partially funded by the government. Officials with the organization say they're grateful for the additional funding.
"Our funding sources are always challenging so to be chosen as a charity this year and to be receiving this, these additional unexpected funds has been a tremendous boon to us and to be able to provide the services that we do for the meals on wheels program and the home delivered meal program," said Jane Schramm, Senior Services of Albany CEO.
The other local nonprofit chosen to receive funding from the event is Schoharie Recovery Inc.
