AOW Associates recently sponsored the Evening in Winter Wonderland Event held at Taste in downtown Albany, raising funds for the Homeless and Travelers Aid Society.  HATAS, founded in 1924, works to meet the immediate needs for shelter, food, and clothing and assists with long-term needs for affordable housing and employment for our local citizens seeking assistance. Some of the services HATAS provides includes backpacks for hungry students, 24/7 emergency shelter, mental health assistance, veterans housing, and employment assistance.

Information on this annual event can be found at  and for more information on HATAS and how you can help, go to
