EVERY MINUTE MATTERS!
Our Annual Touch A Truck event is a one day family event designed to give children the opportunity to interact with the people and vehicles that protect and build our community. With tremendous support from local fire departments and businesses, we have close to 40 vehicles on site. Children are able to sit on and pretend to drive firetrucks, boom trucks, rescue vehicles, plow trucks, tow trucks and recovery vehicles, just to name a few.
The Foundation supports research at Albany Medical Center on Sepsis, infectious diseases and the immune system. Learn more on our Sepsis page.
The Johnathan R. Vasiliou Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to high school seniors. We were blessed to be able to share in Johnathan’s passions and watch him make mature decisions for himself and his future. We hope to honor his life by giving this award to a student like Johnathan who along with dedication to academics, enjoys extracurricular activities and clubs with enthusiasm, has a positive impact in the community and encourages others and fellow Spartans to be their very best.
The Foundation supports the Salvation Army Toy Drive with our annual Toy & Cookie swap. Exchange a toy for your favorite holiday cookies.
Johnathan and his friends were active members of the Queensbury chapter of the Youth & Government program. Each year we provide funding to assist with the costs of attending the annual State Conference.
