RAY BROOK - National Make-A-Difference Day, sponsored by USA Weekend, was held Oct. 27.
Staff from Adirondack Correctional Facility again participated in this event by benefitting the residents of the Dechantal Apartment Housing Complex located in Saranac Lake. This is the fourth year they have sponsored the event at this complex which primarily houses senior citizens.
Thirteen staff members each prepared a home cooked dish and four staff members volunteered their time on Saturday to serve the residents.
Forty-four residents enjoyed the home cooked meal served in their community room.
As a result of the staff and the community's donations, they were able to give away 22 gift baskets full of goodies, candles, gift certificates and more.
Adirondack Correctional Facility staff would like to thank the following businesses for making a donation: Dunkin Donuts, Grand Union (Tops), PJ Hyde & Son's, Lakeview Deli, Pizza Hut, Subway, Downhill Grill, Blue Moon Cafe, Little Italy, The Belvedere Restaurant, Kinney Drug, Coakley's High Peaks Ace Hardware, Jrecks and Owl's Nest.
