CAP COM, Hannaford and Verizon partner to provide 300 Thanksgiving meals to families in need.

ALBANY, NY – November 17, 2015 – CAP COM Federal Credit Union and its charitable giving arm, the CAP COM Cares Foundation, is partnering with Hannaford Supermarkets and Verizon to assemble and deliver 300 Thanksgiving baskets for Capital Region families in need this holiday season.

The CAP COM Cares Foundation has organized the basket delivery for the past 12 years. In that time the Foundation has delivered more than 2,100 meals with all of the fixings of a traditional nutritious holiday meal.

Volunteers assembled and will deliver meals to families supported by organizations including Ronald McDonald House, St. Catherine's Group and Prevention Homes, the Commission on Economic Opportunity, Cohoes Mayor's Office, Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County, Marillac Family Shelter,  St. Paul's Center, Visiting Nurses Association, Watervliet Head Start, YWCA of the Greater Capital Region and twelve local elementary schools in Albany, Cohoes and Troy.

The Thanksgiving program is only possible with the help of community partners Hannaford Supermarkets and Verizon. A grant from Verizon helped cover the costs associated with the program, including the turkeys, and Hannaford donated all remaining food items needed for a complete holiday meal. 

"We are grateful to have Hannaford Supermarkets and Verizon partner with us to find a way to help when it matters most. Together we can build a stronger foundation for our future," said CAP COM President/CEO Paula A. Stopera.
