December Newsletter

Happy holidays!

It’s finally December, and Christmas is right around the corner. We’ve been busy with our Christmas programs this month, and our Adopt-A-Family sponsors are hard at work shopping to fulfill their adopted family’s Christmas wishes. A big thank you to our sponsors for giving families a very merry Christmas!

We are also preparing for the Emergency Christmas program, which will take place the week before Christmas. The Emergency Christmas program provides food, toys, and gifts to families that are facing an urgent or emergency situation and are otherwise unable to secure holiday assistance. This year, the program will begin Monday, December 20th. Families can call in to schedule an appointment to come by and receive some gifts. This program wouldn’t be possible without the generous donations of gifts that we receive from the community. If you’re looking for a way to give back this holiday season, we would be glad to accept your donation of new toys or gifts for children of all ages!

A Special Thanks
Soroptimist International of the Adirondacks and Zonta Club of Glens Falls delivered feminine hygiene products from their “Go with the Flow” campaign. This month, we’ve had several families who are quarantined at home due to COVID illness and are unable to work. Being able to provide these families with basic hygiene items, such as much-needed feminine products, allows them to worry about one less thing during an already stressful time. Thank you for the donation!

Just a reminder!
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are still operating with distancing guidelines in place. We are taking all assistance requests by phone. If anyone needs food or other assistance, just give us a call. We will put together a box of food and place it on our distribution table outside our building at a convenient time for you to pick up, with no in-person contact necessary. We understand this has been a trying time for all of us. Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and support.

Please give us a call if you or your family is in need. Our phone number is 518-793-0797.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
