The Potsdam Snack Pack Program was launched in November 2016 with the goal of providing healthy snacks to elementary school students on weekends and holidays. Currently, more than 250 students, from the elementary to high school level, receive a minimum of eight snacks and lunch items on the weekends. The program is run by volunteers and relies on cash and food donations from the local community. New Hope Community Church sponsors the program and donations are tax deductible. Volunteers normally meet at New Hope Community Church on Thursdays at 9 a.m. to prepare snack packs.
The Potsdam Holiday Fund, Inc. provides new toys, clothing, boots and food to families and senior citizens in need in the Potsdam area. The Potsdam Holiday Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization; thus contributions to the fund are tax deductible as allowed by the IRS.

At the North Country Children’s Museum, we believe that learning is a hands-on, minds-on, interactive experience. With exhibits that celebrate the cultural and geographical resources of the North Country, you’ll find play areas and tinker spaces for all ages to get kids thinking, making, and doing. Build and balance in our Construction Zone or run the store in our Kids Co-Op and Bakery. Explore the Raquette River in our Adirondack Water Play exhibit or light up your mind with our STEAM Power everbright art wall and engineering lab. Our Playspace, especially designed for crawlers, toddlers and preschoolers, gets little ones moving with sensory and imaginative play. Come play and learn with us!
