Saratoga Bridges receives two grants

Saratoga Bridges received a $1,000 donation from BBL Construction Services, LLC at a reception and check presentation ceremony held on Tuesday, June 11 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy.  

Kevin Gleason, President of BBL Construction Services, LLC, Heather Varney, Development and Foundation Director at Saratoga Bridges and Steve Obermayer, CFO of BBL Construction Services, LLC.

Saratoga Bridges will apply these funds to their Builder’s Society, which supports capital improvements to their Residential Department. The organization offers employment, recreation and volunteer opportunities for 120 individuals with developmental disabilities who reside in their 18 community-based homes, four apartments and five family care homes. 

Saratoga Bridges was also awarded a $2,000 grant from Walmart’s Local Giving Program.  Dion Hazen, Manager of the Saratoga Springs Supercenter was instrumental in securing the grant. The funds will allow Saratoga Bridges to purchase woodworking equipment for the Community Action Group (CAG) located at their Wilton Day Program.  As these items cannot be obtained through any of their other revenue streams, they must be proactive in seeking contributions.
