Farther Peter Young
The mission of Peter Young Housing, Industries, and Treatment, which began more than 50 years ago when a young priest began to care for the addicted and impoverished who had nowhere to turn. Father Young’s programs offer hope and opportunity to the impoverished, the addicted, and the socially disenfranchised through addiction treatment, housing, vocational training, and job placement. The IACC Foundation is proud to support Father Young and his programs.
The Schenectady Ambassadors offer a unique presence of hospitality, customer service, and expertise to visitors, patrons, and the downtown business community. They provide expert interaction with the community, connecting patrons to resources, creating relationships built on trust, and promoting positive behaviors.
Earthquakes in Italy
In light of the earthquakes that hit central Italy in August and October 2016, the IACC Foundation collected donations to assist with aid to the victims. Due to the generosity of our membership, we were able to send some relief to the people suffering from that tragic event.
Padre Pio Orphanage
Each year the money collected during our St Anthony’s Mass is given to benefit the Padre Pio Orphanage in San Giovani Rotondo (near Naples.) Each year we look forward to communicating with Sister Francesca Immaculate and Sister Angela to ensure that we are able to donate to this wonderful orphanage.We have many volunteers involved with the Foundation that participate in various programs through out the year.
Meals to Veterans
Meals to Veterans is a volunteer opportunity that we are particularly proud of as it is a chance to give back to people that fought for our country and our freedom. Our volunteers bring a buffet of food and drinks and serve the residents of the Stratton VA Hospital.
Cash for Coats
The Cash for Coats Drive is an event sponsored by the City of Albany that involves community members collecting funds toward the purchase of NEW winter items for Albany kids in need.
Over the years, the Cash for Coats program has distributed tens of thousands of new winter clothing items to Albany schoolchildren. B. Lodge and Co. offers a significant discount on any items purchased for the Cash for Coats Drive, maximizing the impact of each cash donation.
If you or someone you know would like to get involved in any of these programs please contact the Membership Office at 518-456-4222.
