$25,000 donated in Latham to help fight child hunger

Posted:

LATHAM, N.Y. – A large donation was made in Latham Thursday to help fight child hunger.

A donation of $25,000 was made by Morgan Stanley to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.

The money will help expand the food bank's child hunger initiatives at one of the busiest times of the year for the food bank.

"Really tremendous time of year, we are so busy during the holiday season it's wonderful to get this type of support and it's not all that typical to get a donation of that magnitude," said Mark Quandt of the food bank.

Quandt says the money will help provide an additional 100,000 meals to needy children in the area.
