The 13th annual SUNY Orange County Community College Adopt-A-Family campaign was once again a success as the generosity of the College community provided gifts and grocery support for 33 families–a total of 155 individuals–in and around the lower Hudson Valley during this holiday season.
Since 2003, College faculty, staff and students have been working with local non-profit organizations to adopt less-fortunate families and children during the holiday season. Over that 13-year period, SUNY Orange’s Adopt-A-Family program has helped a total of 2,583 individuals in 716 families.
Contributions and donations of all kind this year were provided by SUNY Orange employees and student clubs. Then, the gifts and groceries were distributed to local schools and organizations in time for holiday season delivery.
