“The Festival of Trees is the biggest fundraiser and community event of the year for Catholic Charities of Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties. With decreased funding and increased need, it is becoming much more difficult to assist the people in our community who have been hit hard in these difficult times,” said Executive Director for Catholic Charities of Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties, Sister Charla Commins.
