Corning Credit Union recently held their coat drive and thanks to the generosity of the public, there will be 249 warmer men, women and children in our area.  The coat drive, co-sponsored by Crystal Cleaners, was held during the month of September. 

"We are very pleased with the number of coats donated for this important community giving initiative," said Kim Depew, Marketing Supervisor at Corning Credit Union.  "Each organization and school we delivered coats to was very appreciative and thankful that the public recognized this need."

Warm winter coats were distributed to Corning Community Food Pantry, Corning Senior Center, Catholic Charities Samaritan Center in Elmira, the Big Flats Community Food Pantry, the Shepherd's Cupboard in Savona, the Salvation Army in Corning, Catholic Charities Steuben Turning Point in Bath, Oakwood United Methodist Food Pantry, and several schools in the Corning and Elmira area.
