For the 14th consecutive year, the Skidmore College community has come together to assist local residents and families through the Skidmore Cares community service program.
This year, Skidmore faculty, staff and families raised more than $14,000, and donated more than 6,000 food items and nearly 1,000 school supplies and personal care items — setting Skidmore Cares fundraising and food collection records — for Saratoga County community organizations.
Founded in 2006 by Skidmore President Philip A. Glotzbach and his wife, Marie Glotzbach, the program has gathered more than $122,000 in monetary gifts and 45,000 food items, school supplies and personal care items over the years.
