Albany, NY –  The City of Albany is proud to launch Albany Cares; a COVID-19 relief effort that aims to assist families in obtaining the home and healthcare products that are unavailable through the SNAP and WIC programs.

The City of Albany is partnering with Trinity Alliance Inc., an Albany based non-profit that provides services to support and promote healthy families, adults and children in our community.  Monetary donations are accepted via the online donation portal: http://www.trinityalliancealbany.org/albany-cares/

Donations are accepted from Wednesday, July 1st through Saturday, August 1st, 2020.

If you are unable to donate at this time, a one-day in-person drive to collect items will be held on Saturday, August 1st, from 10am to 2pm in Albany’s Lincoln Park.  Additional information on the drive and what items are needed can be found via the Office of Cultural Affairs website  http://albanyevents.org/events/Albany-Cares_13_event_main.htm

Social distancing guidelines will be strictly enforced. One hundred percent of your contribution goes toward Trinity Alliance, Inc..

Trinity Alliance's mission is to provide services to the community that will support and promote healthy families, adults and children.  The agency is dedicated to improving the neighborhood as a setting for family life, contributing to health and well-being and promoting education and employment as a means of self-development.

As we continue to navigate these unprecedented times, together, we truly can make a difference.
