We can all help...

Company Overview
Since 1974, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc. (RMHC) has been working to improve the health and well being of children – touching nearly 5.7 million children worldwide every year.

When my sister was sick, Ronald McDonald House was awesome and provided so much warmth and comfort. Now they need some help so they can pass that on to other families. Anything you can donate would be great. ~ Jess McG-Fowler

A fulfillment center on 116 acres between Interstate 90 and Route 9. 

Town officials announced that an Amazon Fulfillment Center could fill this proposed million square foot building just off of Route 9.

Murray's admission of representing Amazon as the tenant for the distribution center was met with applause from the crowd that packed Schodack Town Hall.

But it did little alleviate the concerns nearby residents have.

What do you think about AMAZON coming to Schodack?  Leave a comment!
