Albany Businessman Gives Back To Children In Need For The Holidays

Albany businessman and entrepreneur, Kris Roglieri, was recently featured on ABC News 10 discussing his holiday mission to give back to the children in need within his community. Mr. Roglieri is the CEO and founder of Prime Commercial Lending, a commercial finance company that assists business owners nationally with the ability to access capital for their business.

Every year Mr. Roglieri makes it his top priority to locate children in need, through his Project Santa program to donate gift cards to families that are experiencing tough times. 10 families will be selected to receive a $500 Toys ‘R’ Us gift card to spend on toys and clothes for these children whom would most likely have very little to nothing this holiday season.

This is the 5th annual running of this special program and Mr. Roglieri states “Christmas is a special time of the year and no child should have wake up to nothing under the tree”. Mr. Roglieri personally sorts through hundreds of entries every year and makes his decisions based on the hardships of the child and their families in need.
