Support Summer Youth Programs in Albany's Northside Neighborhoods!

Wall of Arbor Hill Development Corp. Bulletins

As we celebrate our five year anniversary on Watervliet Ave., we continue to seek ways to do good work in our neighborhood. For these last two weeks of June, we're focusing some of our fundraising efforts and energy to benefit the Arbor Hill Development Corporation, a local non-profit that is seeking funds to help start summer youth baseball and softball leagues in Albany's northside neighborhoods of Sheridan Hollow, North Albany, West Hill and West End. 

There is limited opportunity for children in these neighborhoods to participate in school or community sponsored baseball and softball. In the Spring of 2017, the City of Albany restored the baseball and softball fields at the Field of Dreams in Arbor Hill Park but these field are currently used primarily by adults. There are currently no baseball or softball programs for the children of these neighborhoods. 

Here are two ways you can help!

1. Purchase a donation card for $1 or more at the register next time you shop at Honest Weight and help provide summer & afterschool programming to our young neighbors in Albany’s northside communities! 100% of your donation will go to the Arbor Hill Development Corp. Honest Weight is matching all funds raised now through June 30th up to $500, so your donation counts double!

2. Come to our BBQ on Saturday during our 5 Year Anniversary Celebration! Our staff and member-owners will be serving up food from 1-3pm at a suggested donation of $5 a plate while supplies last. All proceeds will benefit the campaign for summer youth baseball and softball.

The Arbor Hill Development Corporation, a not-for-profit, Neighborhood Preservation Company facilitates the stability and vitality of distressed communities within the City of Albany through Community and Economic Development. AHDC seeks to improve the quality of life through the creation of welcoming environments, thriving neighborhood economies, and access to world class education and careers.
