December is a very busy time for all of us and this is certainly no different for our volunteers at the Clothing Closet. We work hard all year long to get the items we need throughout the year. This year we are continuing our Gift of Bedtime Reading Program. This program was started many years ago by a Greece School Teacher collecting books and warm pjs for our clients at Christmas Time. Thanks to GRB Bank, Lynn Dates at Keller Williams Real Estate and Kathy O'Leary we will be distributing these gifts once again in December while they last. We've also received a supply of new hoodies from St Charles. The generosity of the community is amazing.
As always, we are in need of childrens clothing sizes 6-14, sheets, especially queen size, and warm blankets. Thank you all for your understanding we do appreciate it. Merry Christmas to all.
