HOLIDAY HELPING HANDS
Money is tight for everyone, especially for the military families in our area. With so many of them having to serve many deployments and the everyday stresses of life, they already have a lot on their mind. The holidays can be made even more stressful because of this and their inability to give their children their gifts. A local group Rolling Thunder® Chapter 2 NY, is conducting a toy drive to help alleviate this stress and show our appreciation with the help of several local restaurants and businesses. This program is called Operation Holiday Helping Hands.
Starting from November 10th through December 15 2010, there will be several locations with drop off points and special programs.
