YMCA Donation

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (DECEMBER 21, 2018) — Thanks to the generosity of River Valley Regional YMCA and its Executive Director Sonja Davy, some students in need will receive gifts this holiday season.

Through its Angel Tree, the YMCA asked its members to purchase coats, backpacks, pants, socks, scarves and hats for students of all ages in the district. These gifts will go to students who do not have these basic items.

"This time of year we have many students who are in need and will not receive presents," said Dr. Richard Poole, director of student services, who worked with Davy on the project. "Thanks to the Williamsport YMCA and the generosity of its members, over 50 students will receive items that will put a smile on their face. For many students, it’s not games and electronics they want for Christmas, it’s just the basics of having warm clothes and a nice backpack for school."
