Local Kiwanis Clubs Spread Cheer: January 2022

January 2022

The members of the Kiwanis Clubs of Monticello and Woodridge joined forces once more to bring holiday cheer to the Office for the Aging Meals on Wheels Participants as well as local families serviced by the Sullivan County Federation for the Homeless.
They presented little gifts and greeting cards to Sullivan County Federation for the Homeless Program Administrator Kathy Kreiter and to Office for the Aging Director Lise-Anne Deoul and Nutrition Services Coordinator Jane Bozan. The gifts included an assortment of holiday solar dancers, play dough, coloring books, hats, gloves, scarves, Find the Word and Crossword Puzzles, body lotion, playing cards, stuffed animals and holiday mugs filled with candy.
In addition to the Kiwanis Club members, the Monticello High School Key Club, Mrs. Jill Weiner’s Liberty Middle School Class as well as the Aktion Club of Sullivan County, comprised of individuals from Arc The Greater Hudson Valley, New Hope Community and Center for Discovery, contributed a large amount of beautifully hand- made greeting cards and gifts.
The main mission of this project was to give back to the community and to reassure the recipients that people were thinking of them and wanted to make their holiday a little more enjoyable.
