In anticipation of the July 4th holiday, free coffee, cold drinks, and snacks will be available at the rest stop just north of Exit 9 on the Adirondack Northway (I-87) during the July 4th weekend!

For 26+ years, free coffee has been provided in order to encourage drivers to stop and take a “safety break” from their holiday travels as they head to their vacation spots. This gives drivers an opportunity to stop, stretch their legs, and take a few minutes to re-energize themselves during their trip.

Coffee, soda, bottled water, cookies, and snacks are being provided by the Albany County Assistance.  Albany County Assistance is a non-profit public service communications team, which assists stranded motorists and also works with local police and law enforcement officials to keep our communities safe and to provide assistance during times of crisis. 

The Team is performing this public service on July 1- 4 to help generate public awareness of the Team and also to raise funds for equipment, radios, flares, barricades, road cones, and training materials. Coffee and refreshments will be available starting at about 9 a.m. on July 1 continuing through about 11 a.m. on July 4.

Families, truckers, “CB’ers,” “HAM’s” and motorists of all types are welcome. If you can’t stop by that weekend but want to support the Team, you can stop by any branch of Pioneer Bank and make a donation to the Albany County Assistance Fund. 

All donations are tax deductible. The Team truly appreciates any help you can give.

Stop by the “wake break,” say hello, and refresh yourself during your holiday travels this year.
