The Holidays Bring Out the Giving in People!
By Susan Stone
“A plethora of donations” have been pouring into the Pawling Resource Center this Season of Giving, according to PRC Director, Terry Ariano. The generosity of the Pawling Community may be seen in the bags and bags of food, toiletries, paper goods, winter coats, hand knitted scarves and mittens, and other items daily appearing at the center. Local Hannaford shoppers purchased 237 holiday food boxes that the store then passed along to the Center. Additionally, Catholic Charities Food Drive once again designated the PRC as a recipient of its Thanksgiving food drive, donating 673 items of dry and canned goods to the PRC food pantry.
“Our community is so very generous, and people really give a lot of thought to how they can best help their neighbors in need enjoy a meaningful, healthy and happy holiday season,” reported Ms. Ariano.
