Saratoga Springs wraps up backstretch community holiday giveaway
Sunday is the last day families from the backstretch community who live in the Saratoga area can pick up a new, wrapped Christmas toy for each of their children.
The toys were collected through the efforts of the thoroughbred retirement foundation.
We’re told the community rallied together to make sure each of the nearly five-dozen kids of the backstretch community will have at least one present to open this Christmas.
Also taking place at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, from 10 a.m. until 4 – volunteers from the foundation and the museum will be on hand to help parents choose a coat out of the 60 that were collected over the last two weeks.
