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.

    After The Fire has begun its 7th year adopting the Assemblyman Jim Tedisco Fitness Trail in Ballston Spa. The trail was established in 2005, made possible by a grant sponsored by Assemblyman James Tedisco and thereby named for him. In 2006, After The Fire began it's quest to control litter, in order to allow those who take advantage of the trail to have a pristine place to exercise and also allow the Village workers to attend to other duties. The trail runs from Front Street to Prospect Street and is 1 mile round trip.

  • After The Fire members marched in the Saratoga Springs Memorial Day Parade.


  • Saratoga - The Wilton Elks Lodge has presented a breakfast buffet to benefit After The Fire, Inc in September of each year from 2008-2012. The profits from the breakfast were donated to enable AFTER THE FIRE, Inc to assist families who have suffered a loss due to fire.
