The Utica Comets hockey team and Utica City Football Club indoor soccer team collaborated with Assemblywoman Marianne Buttenschon on collecting donations for the 2019 winter accessory drive.
Marianne Buttenschon, the Assemblywoman of D-119th Dist. of Marcy, delivered donations from her winter accessories drive to representatives from The Center, Mohawk Valley Community Action Agency and Upstate Cerebral Palsy on Wednesday, Dec. 11 at the Adirondack Bank Center at the Utica Memorial Auditorium.
Many donations such as hats, gloves, and scarves were not only sent to The Center but The Mohawk Valley Community Action Agency and Upstate Cerebral Palsy as well.
“A lot of our new immigrant and refugee neighbors come from places that aren’t used to harsh winters so this means a lot,” said Dan Vellone, Executive Assistant at The Center.
