Adirondack for Kids raises $102,600



The students return the backpack to their school at the start of the week so it can be re-stocked for the following weekend.

The charity has also helped fund construction of a playground behind the Flander’s School in Malone and another in Burke.

The Huskies Science and Swim Summer Camp has also received funding. It is a week-long camp at Franklin Academy for students in grades 1 through 8 with a focus on science activities in the ecosystem around the school and swimming in its pool. 

Money from Adirondack for Kids has allowed children to receive a scholarship to participate in the program, which costs $150.

Monette said the charity has received a lot of support from the community since its inception.

“There’s a lot of generous people out there.”
