The Fund operates in the Tri-Lakes Area, which includes the towns of Schroon Lake, Olmstedville, Adirondack, Pottersville, Brant Lake, North Creek and Chestertown. The Fund has acted upon requests for help from people living as far north as Plattsburgh and Lake Placid, and as far south as Saratoga Springs and South Glens Falls. All requests for help, regardless of the geographical area, are given equal consideration.
