“As a mother/father/guardian, you want the best for your child,” states Lindsay Winters, Catholic Charities’ Director of Development. “But what if you couldn’t financially make ends meet? Can you imagine sending your child to school in clothes with holes, sneakers that are too tight, a tattered backpack or without the needed school supplies for success? Please donate today. With the help of our local businesses and people like you, we can ensure all kids start the year off right.”
Monetary donations may be sent to Catholic Charities, 607 N Franklin St, Watkins Glen, NY 14891 or made online. Please indicate Schuyler County Back to School Drive.
Catholic Charities’ Back to School Giveaway will be held at Schuyler Outreach on August 21 from 5 pm to 8 pm (must be a Schuyler County resident). From 3 pm to 5pm, we plan to offer free haircuts by local barbers and beauticians. If you would like to donate your time to cut hair, please contact Nancy at 607-228-5021.
