NISKAYUNA — On Thursday, June 4, local Hannaford manager Joel Riley presented the Rosendale Elementary School PTO with a $1,000 grant from the Hannaford Helps Schools program.

Throughout the year, Hannaford Helps Schools gives three “school dollars” for every four qualifying items purchased at stores, then invites shoppers to put their rewards into a plastic bin for the school of their choice.

Rosendale collected $135 in 2014, the most of any Niskayuna school, which meant their PTO won the additional grant for participation. Niskayuna High School came in at a close second with $132, according to Hannaford’s website.
