POTSDAM -- Despite stormy weather, the Seventh Annual Potsdam Charity Hankfest held in Ives Park recently raised $417 in donations for The Birthplace at Canton-Potsdam Hospital.
The event’s contribution to the Hospital Foundation will be used to purchase educational materials for new parents to ensure every baby gets a healthy start in life.
The Hospital Foundation exists to raise and manage funds for the sole benefit of the patients served by Canton-Potsdam Hospital.
Donations may be mailed to the foundation at 50 Leroy Street Potsdam, or made online at www.cphospital.org.
