Get Crocked: Crockpot For A Cause Cooking Contest

Proceeds from “Crockpot for a Cause” benefited Tina and Rich Powers and family. Rich Powers, a Canaan resident suffered a traumatic brain injury caused by a motorcycle accident on his way to work this past Memorial Day weekend. While Rich has a long road ahead of him, he is making progress every day. Tina recently has had to return to work part time to avoid losing her position as an R.N. Rich’s treatments include trips to Sunnyview Rehabilitation in Schenectady three times a week. Tina, the main caregiver, along with Rich, are also continuing to volunteer as a coaches for Northern Columbia County Pop Warner, who is assisting the family by coordinating a 50/50 raffle as well. Rich is a 12 year veteran of the United States Army. Our hope is that the community will come together to help the Powers’ family in their time of need.

Our Community Cares, Inc. has set up a donation link as well as a Meal Train to benefit the family. For more information about this event, please email gro.c1501029151csera1501029151cytin1501029151ummoc1501029151ruo@o1501029151fni1501029151 or call 518.336.5254.
