We are seven weeks into the 2017 fund drive. We have had a great start. Through Nov. 25th, we have collected $7,165.50 toward our $20,500 goal. Thanks to all who have contributed.
This drive will run through September 30, 2017.
Watch for our monthly updates. Each month we will feature a write up on one of the organizations that the Cameron County Community Chest contributes to.
This month’s feature will be the Package Team.
A group of Rich Valley women started the Package Team over 20 years ago. The team currently sends out around 85 packages (a little piece of Cameron County for Christmas) each year to our local service men, women and reservists. Boxes are filled with snacks, coffee, toiletries, paper, pens, newspapers, playing cards, Christmas ornaments made by the folks at Guy and Mary Felt Manor, letters from the kids at Woodland Elementary. Some items are donated by local businesses. Other items are purchased. Postage is the largest cost. If you would like to find out more about the Package Team, get your Service Person on the list, or make a donation to Package Team,
Please contact Karen Schatz at 486-0573.
No donation/memorial is too small. Please send your tax-deductible contribution to: Cameron County Community Chest, PO Box 134, Emporium, PA. 15834, Attn: Judd Schager.
Help to support the Recreation Board, Community Nurses, Red Cross, Friends of the Library, the Package Team, and the Garden Club.
The Cameron County Community Chest Board of Directors wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
