Today had been the deadline for dropping off contributions to the “Caring Community Basket Brigade” at the Greenbush YMCA and other venues as part of a Thanksgiving drive for needy families in the area.
However, SRC member Shannon Romanowski, who is coordinating the effort as part of her duties as director of two YMCAs, today posted this note on the SRC Facebook page:
“We are still in need of food donations for our Thanksgiving ‘Basket Brigade.’ Items may be dropped off at the Greenbush Y before next Thursday (November 16). Last year we delivered meals for 166 people. This year the need has grown, so we need your help!”
Here is a copy of the original flyer. It contains a list of what is needed. Please ignore the November 10 deadline.
