Colonie Raider football has formed a new partnership with iCARE and expanded their community outreach even further. 

The iCARE students began a program this year with librarian Lisa Berner and students at Shaker Road Elementary School called ‘we’CARE (beginning iCARE students). Every two weeks high school iCARE students would visit, socially interact and thoughtfully engage the students in discussions and participate with them in various crafts for veterans.

Lap blankets, holiday cards and Valentines have been the products of their efforts, but now a new dimension of interaction has come thanks to CCHS football student-athletes.

The “Raider Reader” program brings Colonie football players into participation with elementary school budding readers and forms a mentoring bond. It’s formation hopes to inspire life-long readers and learners, community enhancement and form a bridge of educational enjoyment across the grade levels.
