The New York Racing Association and the City of Saratoga Springs will add two local non-profit organizations to the list of beneficiaries of a joint initiative to raise funds for the community through the sale of Saratoga Race Course face masks. In addition to Franklin Community Center and Shelters of Saratoga, the list of beneficiaries will be expanded to include AIM Services, Inc. and the SNACpack Program (Saratoga Nutrition Assistance for Children).

A portion of proceeds will be donated in equal allotments to support the efforts of the four Saratoga Springs-based non-profit organizations, which provide food, shelter and other critical resources to the community.

The Saratoga reusable cloth face masks come in a variety pack featuring three individual designs: a red mask with a white Saratoga logo; a white mask with a red Saratoga logo; and a navy-blue mask with a red Saratoga logo. The masks include a white border and stretchable elastic ear straps with an interior pocket for a replaceable filter.

“Given the passion for Saratoga, we knew the masks would be popular and are thrilled by the enthusiasm shown by our fans,” said NYRA President & CEO Dave O’Rourke. “We’re pleased to be able to expand the campaign to benefit two additional local non-profits who do important work in Saratoga Springs. I’d like to again thank Mayor Kelly and the City of Saratoga Springs for their partnership and support of this program.”
