CDPHP employees recently kicked off the 2014 Charity of Choice campaign at the Times Union Center as the Albany Devils battled the Adirondack Phantoms. The game day outing raised $2,075 for this year’s charity, the American Red Cross Northeastern New York Region.

Now in its fifth year, the Charity of Choice campaign is a yearlong fundraising effort that gives CDPHP employees a chance to participate in dozens of fundraisers and hands-on volunteer opportunities.

Last year, employees raised more than $41,000 for Habitat for Humanity Capital District and Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar. The previous Charity of Choice recipients were Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region, Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, and the American Heart Association.
