Woodmen Life donates

Brad Lucas, right, with Woodmen Life in Malone, presents a check for $1,000 to Dick LaVigne, director of the Backpack Program for Citizen Advocates, to benefit the program. Run entirely on community contributions and volunteer efforts, all money raised for the Backpack Program goes toward providing eligible students in grades kindergarten through sixth with nutritious meals on weekends during the school year. Donations are also welcome for the Adopt-A-Kid program, where any gift of $200 goes to support a single child for the entire year. For more information, contact Joe Riccio at 518-651-2760.
