YWCA Mohawk Valley (YWCA MV) extends its gratitude to the Bruce and Frances Bull Family Fund for their generous gift to the Child Advocacy Center of Herkimer County (CAC) through Annie’s Fund, part of The Women’s Fund of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, Inc.
The donation was used to purchase holiday gifts as part of YWCA MV’s annual Adopt-A-Family holiday program for 31 children through the CAC, totaling just over $2,400.
“This donation allowed us to bring heart-warming, holiday cheer to the children we serve in Herkimer County,” says YWCA MV CEO Dianne Stancato. “We are grateful for the Bull family’s generosity and for the great work of the Women’s Fund.”
“Annie’s Fund is grateful to the Bruce and Frances Bull Family for their generous donation to purchase holiday gifts and warm winter clothing for children in Herkimer County,” says Hedy Hage, Annie’s Fund co-chair, on behalf of The Women’s Fund. “We are equally grateful to the YWCA staff and administration for their collaboration in providing the grassroots efforts to bring this to fruition.”
