SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Dunkin’ and Siena men’s basketball coach Carmen Maciariello are teaming up to deliver more than 50 basketballs and 200 water bottles to the Boys and Girls Club of Schenectady.
The donation is intended to help local children stay “active, hydrated and mentally engaged” while participating in club activities during school break and the summer.
“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Schenectady is thrilled to partner with Dunkin’ and Siena College men’s basketball to help reward our young people for displaying outstanding behaviors,” said Shane Bargy, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Schenectady. “The kids at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Schenectady work so hard and this recognition is so wonderful for their confidence.”
In addition to the basketballs and water bottles, Dunkin’ franchisees thanked the staff and volunteers at the Club by providing them gift cards, coffee and baked goods during the visit. The Boys & Girls Club of Schenectady has more than 60 staff members who oversee more than 400 children and teens, both in-person and virtually.
