A miracle donation for veterans
SARATOGA SPRINGS — After collecting donations from members at the December Capital Region Executive Board meeting, region Veterans Committee members delivered three car trunks full of items to the Veterans Miracle Center in Albany.
The center offers veterans and their immediate families the chance to “shop” for free in a unique, retail-style store offering essentials that include clothing, housewares, personal care items and a pantry.
