ELENA ANGELOS COLLECTED 843 SOCK BUNDLES FOR VOLUNTEER NY

Elena grew up in Hartsdale. Went to Woodlands. 2 yrs ago an acquaintance of hers was interning at Volunteer NY. And, introduced her to the good work they do. Elena is also a volunteer at Gigi's Playhouse in Ardsley. Since November Elena has been asking residents to fill bags with socks, toothpaste and a toothbrush. She emailed a bunch of people in the Edgemont area and people at her gym and lots of them wanted to get involved as the bundles also need a hand-written note. The Greenburgh Town Hall was one of the drop off locations for her sock campaign.


Once again, because of your generosity she collected 843 sock bundles this year! What is most impressive is that last year we donated 207 bundles to Volunteer NY and that was quite a feat in itself. Having quadrupled that amount is very exciting.


This really underscores the season of giving in a big way. Thank you Elena and thank you to those who are making the holiday season brighter for the less fortunate.
