GENEVA — The Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning at Hobart and William Smith Colleges collected and distributed more than $6,500 in gifts and donations through its annual Holiday Gift Project.
Ninety-one children in the Geneva Head Start and Agri-Business Child Development programs benefited from the project.
“I was full of surprise, appreciation and gratitude for the generous donations for our children and families we serve,” said Karissa Schutt, the education and disability coordinator at Geneva Head Start. “I know that this will make a huge difference to so many families’ lives. Thank you!”
The HWS community also donated food and cooking supplies to the Community Lunch Program and Center of Concern.
“We want to express our heartfelt thanks to all of you who shopped for and donated to the Holiday Gift Project. We are grateful to be part of such a giving and service-oriented community,” said Jeremy Wattles, assistant director of the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning.
