February 23, 2008

(Hudson NY)

The Boys and Girls Club now known as the Hudson Youth Center has been at the heart of the community for many years.

At the center, they concentrate on character development through the member code of conduct, tutoring and the overall atmosphere created by the staff and youth alike.

The Hudson Youth Center is run on four corner stones which radiate through its programs:  structure, new experience, character and community.

Today, the Hudson River Bank & Trust Co. Foundation is announcing it will provide funding in the amount of $500,000 for the Hudson Youth Center.

The payments are subject to conditions listed in a memorandum of understanding between the City of Hudson and the Hudson River Bank & Trust Co. Foundation.

“I am deeply and sincerely grateful to the Foundation for this major financial contribution to the Youth Center and certainly what it means to our community as we strive to provide essential services and programs for our youth.  These monies come with high expectations and challenges and rightfully so.” Said Mayor Rick Scalera

“Supporting our community in meaningful ways has been a core value for our Foundation throughout its history.” Said Carl Florio, Director of the Foundation. “The Foundation is proud to support programs that enhance the lives of so many youth in our area.”

The Hudson River Bank & Trust Company Foundation was established in 1998 to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations.  The Foundation continues its charitable giving with an emphasis on education, youth development, arts and culture, historic preservation, health care, human services and community development.  For additional information regarding the grant application process, please contact Holly Rappleyea at (518) 671-6226 or visit our website at
