In conjunction with Mayor Jerry Jennings, the Lark Street BID will be participating in the annual "Mayor's Fall Drop Off" program.
The program is designed to reach out to the community and collect new winter clothing for school-aged children (pre-k through 5th grade) living in the Albany area. A one-day event will be held on October 23rd from 10am to 1pm at the Armory Garage, 926 Central Avenue (across from the Westgate Plaza).
In addition to being able to drop off donations of new winter items, enjoy refreshments, and participate in childrens' activities, visitors have the chance to win prizes when a donation of $20 or more is made.
If you are unable to participate on the 23rd, you can still donate to the Mayor's Fall Drop Off. On Lark Street Cafe 217, eba, Inc, Ben and Jerry's, and Seasons Skate Shop each have a bin to collect new winter items. Additionally, Lodge's Department Store in Downtown Albany is offering discounted winter items for purchase for the program. Support your local retailers and help keep a child warm this winter!
