On Sunday, February 9th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the YMCA Togetherhood™ Committee will be holding their Clothing Collection Drive Kickoff at Aviation Mall.
The Family YMCA of the Glens Falls area recognizes that the cold months in upstate New York can bring added hardship to local families. A group of YMCA Togetherhood™ committee members is helping to meet the needs of local youth by collecting donations of new cold weather gear.
The Togetherhood™ team is asking for the public’s help in collecting donations of new gloves/mittens, hats, warm socks and scarves for youth. The clothing can be dropped off at the YMCA’s display location in center court near Regal Cinemas. The YMCA will provide the donated clothing to local school districts and Head Start locations.
Togetherhood™ was created to strengthen communities by allowing members to lead and run rewarding service projects as part of the YMCA member experience. By bringing people together in service to their neighborhoods, Togetherhood™ is designed to build both individual and community well-being.
