After The Fire strives to return some of the support we receive
from the community.
We are willing to speak at meetings of area
groups to discuss the work of our organization. Recently we spoke to the children attending the Saratoga Independent School about the mission of our organization. The children
earned money for reading books through out the year, which they used to buy books for children of fire families to replace the books the children
had lost in a home fire. We spoke to the Clifton Park Rotary Club. They donated a book to the Clifton Park - Halfmoon Library in the name of After the Fire, Inc.
In the past we worked with the following programs:
After the fire hosted a table at the May 2013 open house of
the SARATOGA SPRINGS VETERINARY, UNION AVE, SARATOGA SPRINGS
to bring attention to its mission. Cindy Aloisi, President,
offers literature on the assistance provided by the
organization. Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Company of Vt, with
a store in Saratoga Springs, donated ice cream for the
visitors to our table.
