Helping Spread Christmas Kindness for Kids in Red Hook

As one of our 170 Acts of Kindness our Red Hook branch donated a $250 gift card to the VFW Auxiliary and the American Cruisers Motorcycle Club. They do a Christmas party each year in Red Hook at the VFW. Each child that comes to the party gets a gift, snacks, and a chance to chat with Santa. Last year they gave away over 100 gifts, including bikes, games, and even a TV. When branch manager Melissa Morrison was speaking with them at another event, they mentioned that they were low on funds this year to purchase the gifts (they rely on donations and fundraisers for the money to purchase the gifts) and were worried about having to turn kids away. They were so grateful to receive the gift card! The event will be on December 19 with Melissa and her team being there to help out.
