SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- For a child in need, getting each meal in a day struggle, let alone finding a place to have fun, with toys and games.
But thanks to a donation to The City Mission of Schenectady, kids have a chance to play, while their parents seek the mission's services.
Collision Experts of Schenectady donated $7,000 to the mission, to pay for toys and games in the expanded playroom and computer room.
"Have children be able to come who haven't done anything wrong themselves just a victim of circumstances be able to break that cycle. Be able to help them focus on school so they can actually succeed," said Ben Bowman, Collision Experts.
"Helping them grow and really, really reach their potential because the people who come here, the men, women, and children have unlimited potential and the community needs them to be strong," said Michael Saccocio, City Mission of Schenectady Executive Director.
The City Mission is also adding more apartments for women and children at the center.
