Teachers in the Capital Region are missing their students. Even though it's only been a little over a week, it feels like so much longer than that. Teachers at Pine Bush Elementary School in Guilderland decided to have a parade for the kids to stay connected.
The kids went out into their driveways and the teachers formed a caravan of cars. Many of them were decorated in Guilderland's red and white colors. They beeped and waved to each kid, in a parade through their neighborhoods.
Local restaurants are taking a big hit right now, but they remain committed to the Capital Region community. Jacob and Anthony's in Stuyvesant Plaza has committed to serving meals to first responders. Their goal is 20 lunches and 20 dinners a day for police, firefighters and healthcare workers. If you know anyone working the front lines that needs a little help, call 518-599-5331 for the meal.
And in a bit of role reversal, local hospitality workers are used to serving meals to their customers, but now, it's their turn to be on the receiving end. Yono's and DP an American Brasserie and the Savoy Taproom in Albany have teamed up to help provide meals to restaurant workers who have lost their jobs this past week.
Meals will be distributed again today, (Wednesday) from 3-5pm at the Savoy Taproom. For more info go to FeedAlbany.com
