Food drive

TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga and Ticonderoga drive-in offices of Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Co. collected dozens of coats, hats and other winter items for families in need as part of its Community Appreciation Day on Friday, Oct. 5.

The bank began accepting new and gently used winter clothing in September. The donations were presented on Friday to Winter Warmth for Kids, a local organization that distributed the items to 21 local children.

With the holidays approaching, the Ticonderoga office is now turning its attention to collecting nonperishable food items for the local food pantry. Anyone can contribute by dropping off canned or dry goods at 123 Montcalm St. between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Mondays to Wednesdays or 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays through the week of Thanksgiving.
