District’s weekend backpack program, Niskayuna Youth Basketball and fire departments announce “Hoops for Hunger”
The Nisky NOW (Nutrition on Weekends) program is partnering with the Niskayuna Boys and Girls Basketball programs and the Niskayuna fire departments to fill a fire truck with non-perishable goods and personal care items on Sunday, Dec. 9.
The donations will benefit Nisky NOW, which provides a weekly delivery of food to families of students in need.
The fire truck will be at Niskayuna High School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday. Youth basketball players will be taking canned goods from cars that drive through.
Also, admission to youth basketball games will be free that day with a donation.
