Saratoga Springs boys basketball seeks donations for kids

Saratoga varsity coach Jack Brock
Every team in the Saratoga Springs basketball program, regardless of level, will participate in a community service project. This year, the varsity boys are collecting new stuffed animals, new or used books, and monetary donations for kids in local hospitals.
Coach Jack Brock plans to put out boxes to collect the donations outside the Saratoga Springs High School gym and at each of the district's elementary schools.
The distribution of the goods to Albany Medical, Saratoga Hospital and Glens Falls Hospital will be a family affair for Brock. 
"My own children have offered to transport, my son has a pick-up truck," Brock said of his son Richard. "My other son Lucas is going to come and help as well. That's going to be our contribution."
Last year, as the Blue Streaks' JV coach, Brock's team raised $1,600 for a cancer patient at Geyser Road Elementary School.
