Money for students

Erika Bezio, the Saranac Lake Central School District’s Community School liaison, receives a $5,000 donation for the 3rd Meal and Ready for School programs from Vance Mortensen, representing the Ecumenical Council of Saranac Lake. These two programs provide an after-school meal for students participating in extended-day school activities, plus school supplies needed specifically for each grade level. Mortensen said an anonymous donation to the council made the Ecumenical Children’s Fund possible. For more information about supporting these school programs, contact Bezio at 518-897-1467 or bezioeri@slcs.org. (Photo provided)
