Corinth Angel Fund benefits from Community Fundraiser
Written by Corinth Food Service Director Lisa Trevendale
Corinth Central Schools’ Cafeteria Angel Fund recently received a $1,600 donation from a community fundraiser organized by Robin Schumacher. As a result, the cafeteria was able to pay off all outstanding balances on Dec. 24--and this isn’t the first time that Robin has collected donations for our students.
The Cafeteria’s Angel Fund received a donation last June for $1,689. I met with Robin to ask why she felt so compelled to organize these fundraisers and she stated “It’s her way of helping those in need."
Robin grew up in Corinth and Porter Corners, and attended Corinth Central School. Being a life-long resident has created a heartfelt draw to the Corinth Community. Robin retired from New York State as a sign painter for the Park System. She has since started a business called The Saratoga Jockey Painter. You may have noticed some of the meticulously adorned lawn jockey statues she has painted throughout the Saratoga area. The largest collection is found at the Saratoga Race Course main entrance.
We are so honored that Robin has designated the Corinth Angel Fund as the recipient of her latest fundraiser. The cafeteria strives every day to feed its students nutritious meals. We believe, as Robin does, that the student’s well-being comes first. They are attending school to receive a quality education and need to be fueled to focus on learning. If students are stressed and worrying about not having enough funds in their account, they will not be able to concentrate during their classes.
The Corinth Angel fund would like to thank Robin and all who donated. We truly appreciate having community members who are so kind and caring.
