Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company raises $3,000 for SAFER

SCHUYLERVILLE>> The Schuylerville Office of Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company raised more than $3,000 for the Schuylerville Area Food and Emergency Relief Group (SAFER) as part of its Community Appreciation activities last month.

A raffle throughout October generated $3,225 for SAFER. In addition, the branch hosted a balloon-release ceremony with Schuylerville Central School students to acknowledge SAFER’s commitment to ending hunger.

This is the fourth year the branch has held fundraising activities to support SAFER, raising a total of over $10,000 to date. SAFER uses the donations to purchase food at a deep discount from the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. For example, $10,000 in cash equates to about $100,000 worth of food for the community.

Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company provides banking, investment, insurance and other financial services through 30 locations. It hosts community events throughout the year as a way to show appreciation for its customers and neighbors, and assist local causes.
