FREEMAN HOLIDAY FUND: Total reaches $15,636
KINGSTON, N.Y. — It’s down the to wire for the 36th annual Freeman Holiday Fund campaign for the area’s needy.
With Christmas Day in sight, a total of $15,636 had been donated by the end of business Friday. That leaves the drive about $5,000 short of last year, with the final few days of contributions yet to be tallied.
The campaign began on Thanksgiving Day. Donations are passed along to the fund’s primary beneficiaries: People’s Place of Kingston, Family and the Community Action Agency programs in Dutchess, Greene and Ulster counties.
Initial checks to those organizations were distributed last week.
Other regional charitable organizations may be added to the list if collections are sufficient.
Contributions may be mailed or hand-delivered to Holiday Fund, Daily Freeman, 79 Hurley Ave., Kingston, N.Y. 12401.
All money goes to charity. Administrative fees are paid by the Freeman.
Questions about the fund should be directed to Geraldine Wilson, the publisher’s administrative assistant. She can be reached at (845) 331-5000, Ext. 550, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
