Skidmore Cares

Skidmore Cares2016 Collection Teams

Skidmore Cares is an initiative that brings Skidmore colleagues and families together as a community to celebrate and strengthen our connections to each other. 

The initiative also serves as a collective effort to give back to the Saratoga region during the holiday season by working as teams to collect food items, school supplies, and monetary donations to distribute among Saratoga County agencies.
