Giving Back

Brighter Choice for Boys is committed to raising funds each year to benefit the Children's Hospital at Albany Medical Center in memory of Abdulaziz Fadul and Qazir Sutherland. This year Brighter Choice will once again participate in the Students Care for Kids hearts campaign. Hearts will be sold and displayed at the school from February - May, 2015. The generosity of our staff, families and community is greatly appreciated.
