Northern Rivers Family of Services’ Camp To Belong NY program has been awarded a $15,000 grant from the Seymour Fox Foundation, a $5,000 grant from the M&T Charitable Foundation, a $3,000 grant from the MAXIMUS Foundation, and a $2,000 grant from the Cohoes Savings Bank Foundation.

The funds will help support operations for Camp to Belong NY, a weeklong camp provided free of charge to children who have been separated by the foster care system. This year’s session is being held June 23-29 at Camp Chingachgook in Lake George.

“We are truly grateful to the Seymour Fox Foundation, the M&T Charitable Foundation, the MAXIMUS Foundation and the Cohoes Savings Bank Foundation for supporting Camp To Belong NY.
