Operation Santa Claus is dedicated to "Making a brighter Christmas for the area's underprivileged children". It is their goal to raise the self-esteem of these children by providing them with new clothing.

It is with these unknown smiles that Operation Santa Claus has continued its' efforts.
sarcoma affects 1% of all adults with cancer and 15% of all children
with cancer. Although surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation can cure
sarcoma in about 50% of cases, the other half of the time the disease is
resistant to any of these approaches. Therefore, there is an extreme
need for funding in order for researchers to find a more effective
approach to treatment.
Any and all proceeds collected from the race will be given to the Sarcoma Foundation of America in order to support research for sarcoma, as well as the individuals plagued by the disease. Please consider the impact that you can have by supporting Strides Against Sarcoma.
This is the second annual event, and is in honor of the memory of Caroline Savitz, lost too soon to Sarcoma.

The World Awareness Children's Museum (WACM) originated as the vision of one woman, Dr. Jacquiline S. Touba, who in 1985, believed with a dozen other community leaders, that sharing and exchanging the visions of children around the world would promote an appreciation of cultural diversities.
The International Arts & Culture Association (IACA) was formed in 1985 and augmented a growing collection of children's art with educational artifacts from around the world. IACA also organized the annual International Festival of the Adirondacks from 1985 to 1995.
To preserve these growing collections, IACA applied to the Board of Regents of the New York State Department of Education to become a Museum. In 1995, the World Awareness Children's Museum was chartered.
The World Awareness Children's Museum is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization funded from admissions, memberships, retail store, fundraising events, and donations and grants from individuals, corporations, and government.

The Open Door Mission started out of Ernie Blanchette's concern for having a shelter in Glens Falls. After a feasibility study, it was determined that a soup kitchen was of more immediate need. The Open Door served its first 13 hot meals from an RV in Peter Shabat's parking lot off of South Street in Glens Falls, NY, on September 5, 1991. When it became too cold to serve outdoors, Peter Mastrangelo (representing Glens Falls National Bank) offered us the bank's "community room," and later, a store front on South Street. In October of 1993, we were offered an incredible opportunity to move to 24 South Street, and from there to our current location at 47 Lawrence Street in 2010.
The Open Door is a Christian ministry dedicated to reaching out and serving needs of the poor and homeless of our community. One major way we accomplish this is through the daily provision of hot, nutritious meals served in a friendly, welcoming environment. We offer this care to all people, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, creed, or religion.
The Open Door program began by serving a meal once a week. From
there, the program has expanded to a six day operation, recently serving
more than 1600 meals each month-including on-site meals. In a year, our
emergency food pantry provides 20,000 meals to 50 families, as well as
distributing thousands of lbs. of gleaned and other food items to many
Currently, The Open Door functions with a very small staff. All other staffing is accomplished by means of volunteers (500+) representing many local businesses, agencies and churches. In addition to hot meals and emergency food support, the program provides guests with encouragement for daily living, including medical screenings, haircuts, an informal mentoring program, and support to community-based substance abuse. Information referral and advocacy are regularly provided.
The Open Door also partners with 6 local schools to provide weekend lunches for 182 identified "at risk" students in local schools, in cooperation with school administration and the PTA organization. All services and programs are provided free of charge.
The museum, located in downtown Glens Falls on the southeastern edge of
