Event details:  A “Day of Simple Giving” works with over 2000 volunteers.  People of all ages- individuals, families, businesses, community groups, civic groups, religious organizations, and nonprofits - come together to coordinate, create and assemble thousands of basic necessities.  Each year we gave away over $30,000 worth of donations.

Day of the event:  Volunteers assemble and create thousands of practical gifts specific to the needs in our communities:   everyday essentials such as personal care items, household basics, items for local food pantries, community meals, and literacy programs.

Sharing the donations:  We distribute donations to low-income individuals and families, shelters,  Books for Troops, Schuyler Inn, 15 Love, Focus Food Pantries, South End Children's Cafe, Albany City Schools, and many others.
