Julia Hill of Saranac Lake Kiwanis presents a check to Erika Bezio, SLCSD Community School Liaison. “Education is the top priority,” says Erika, “but it can’t succeed unless schools help remove stress on students and families.” This donation will help feed students, clothe them, and provide them with school supplies. The Saranac Lake Kiwanis is actively raising money for the Community Schools Program and other local youth initiatives. The upcoming 20th Annual Pat Stratton Memorial Ride is the next Kiwanis fund-raiser. See strattonride.com. The need is real. The need is now.
