The Schroon Lake Office of Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company celebrated its 45th anniversary and assisted three local causes during its Community Appreciation Day recently.
The office collected toys, coloring books and other items to stuff stockings for the Essex County Toys for Tots program. Thanks to donations from the public, the bank was able to fill 16 stockings. In addition, three bags of groceries were collected for the local food pantry.
The bank also partnered with Schroon Lake High School’s “Seniors Helping Seniors” program, matching student volunteers with elderly residents who need help with yard work or other chores. Three seniors in need of assistance were paired up with volunteers during the event.
Other Community Appreciation Day highlights included homemade soup and bread, birthday cake and free shredding of confidential documents by Adirondack Mobile Shredding.
