BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Tuesday, Ballston Spa National Bank (BSNB) employees will participate in a company-wide Community Service Day. BSNB locations across the Capital Region will close at noon so that employees can volunteer their time. This year’s event will support five local school districts by providing, an anticipated, 750-weekend backpacks containing nutritious, child-friendly foods.

More than 130 employees will volunteer their time to make the donation happen, packing the discreet backpacks with a variety of foods designed to fill plates over the weekend. For families who rely on school lunch programs during the week, Saturdays and Sundays can be especially difficult- and the fundraiser looks to help bridge that weekly gap.

School districts that will benefit include:

  • Ballston Spa Central School District (CSD)
  • Galway CSD
  • Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake CSD
  • Voorheesville CSD
  • Stillwater CSD

“BSNB’s annual Community Service Day reflects our ongoing commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors,” said Christopher R. Dowd, president and CEO. “Our employees are the ‘difference makers’ that set BSNB apart, forging a human connection that emphasizes lasting relationships and a personal investment in the communities we serve.”
