After 'Black Friday,' 'Small Business Saturday,' and 'Cyber Monday'... here we are at 'Giving Tuesday'.


I am curious what are some Albany-based or nearby charities that you all support, or maybe some small ones that just need more awareness (or even inspire some volunteers).

So, what are some of your favorite local non-profits? Here are a couple lets add more to the list.
