$30,000 Raised to Fight Childhood Hunger

Thanks to nearly 100 individuals, businesses and organizations, hundreds of New York children will receive backpacks filled with nutritious food to take home over the weekend.

The 2013 Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (CDPHP®) Holiday Appeal raised $30,811 for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York’s BackPack Program, which provides easy-to-prepare foods to children in need in grades K-6. The program serves 1,000 children in 42 schools across 14 New York counties.
