County Seeks Donations for Troops

BALLSTON SPA – Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner is working with town, village and city leaders to coordinate a donation drive in preparation of Yellow Ribbon Day on Monday, April 9. 

The county is partnering with Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. to support military members who are serving overseas. Donations of goods will be made into “Freedom Boxes” and shipped to deployed troops who call the Capital Region home. 

The collection has already begun, and donations will be accepted at town halls and county offices until Friday, April 6.

All items collected will be presented to the Blue Star Mothers during a Yellow Ribbon Day Ceremony at 11 a.m. on April 10 in the Town of Halfmoon.
