Cold to Help Others Be Warm

United Way’s Executive Direct Kim Lorraine, left, and Volunteer Coordinator Valerie Adams, right, hung bags of warm goodies on trees in Huntington Park for anyone to take.

ONEONTA – Frigid temperatures on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day did not stop United Way Volunteer Coordinator Valerie Adams and nine volunteers from getting warm winter clothing and food to people who need them.

“I kept thinking I should cancel this morning because of the weather,” said Valerie Adams, volunteer coordinator for United Way. “But we had advertised we would have the packets on the trees today, and I didn’t want people going out in such cold weather to take them and then not find them there.”

Volunteers gathered at First United Methodist Church this morning  to do the last stage of United Way’s “Warm Inside and Out!” event,  packing gallon-sized plastic bags with food and warm clothing – hats, scarves, gloves, and mittens – donated by caring Oneonta residents and business owners over the past two weeks.
