Keuka College community provides holiday cheer
PENN YAN — For 13 years the Keuka College community has collected gifts for families in the Yates County area, and this year’s Angel Tree effort was the biggest ever.
A group of Keuka College students delivered sacks full of gifts to the Child and Family Resources office on East Main Street in Penn Yan last week.
Forty-four children and their families, served by Child and Family Resources will enjoy the efforts of the Angle Tree program.
Keuka College Community Service advocates were joined by representatives from Rotaract, Sigma Lambda Sigma the Social Work Club and the DRIVE program participated in the project, according to Laura Williams, one of the members of the Community Service Advocates of Keuka College who work in the Center For Experiential Learning.
Lists of suggested gift items are hung on the Angel Tree at the college, and students, faculty and staff purchase the items to be given to the families.
Williams said more than $5,610 was raised in donations this year as well.
