Before we know it the holiday season will be upon us. It is also a time of year that marks significant need in our communities.
Black River Good Neighbor is already hard at work This is a very busy time for BRGN as this non profit local organization prepares to deliver gifts and a full holiday dinner complete with turkeys and all the fixings to those in need. It is estimated that over 125 families from the immediate and surrounding towns will be helped this holiday season
To help make this possible two event are currently planned. The first upcoming event is the "Stuff A Bus" on Saturday, December 5. This important food drive will take place at the Shaws shopping center parking lot in Ludlow from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The second event is Okemo Mountain's food drive which will take place on Sunday December 6. Skiers are encouraged to bring nonperishable goods to the ticket windows in exchange for reduced priced lift tickets. The food from the drive will help in large part to supply the much needed non perishables for the Christmas Baskets.
There are many ways to get involved with this year's efforts. Volunteers are needed to sort food as it comes in and countless other tasks that are required to make sure everyone that needs help this winter gets it.
Call Audrey at the Thrift Store 228-3663 or stop at 105 Main Street, to ask how you can get involved.
