Community spirit is alive and well

Apr 5, 2021

To the editor:
The Youngsville Firecrackers, a Cornell Cooperative Extension Community Group would like to thank everyone that contributed to our 2020 Sock drive. Although we could not meet together regularly due to Covid 19, our sock drive was outstanding.
Carla Dworetsky coordinated, collected, and organized all the socks, hats, mittens, scarves. Area businesses housed donation collection boxes, members Tracy, Mary, Patti and June helped collect from businesses, receiving a grand total of 1,314 items.
Community members knitted and crocheted beautiful hats, scarves, mittens. The St. Francis, St. Georges and Youngsville Reformed Church members also collected for the drive.
Items donated helped the churches fill 33 community baskets, deliveries were made to the Jeffersonville Adult home, First Way Life Center, Recovery Center, United Way, Sullivan West Elementary and High School, Corona Self Help Center, and any family in need.
If you know of any non profit organization that could use items please contact Carla Dworetsky (845) 482-4588.
Thank you to everyone that donated, knitted, and crocheted, businesses that housed collection boxes, your generosity and kindness is appreciated.
