Fri, Dec 15th 2023 11:00 am

The holiday collections are winding down for the annual Town of Porter/Village of Youngstown Christmas Baskets Program.

In the photos, members of Youngstown Boy Scout Troop 829 are shown with their nonperishable foods collection held in the village last weekend in partnership with the Youngstown Lions Club.

“Many thanks for so many in our community for their generosity in helping neighbors in need!” said Aaron Swanson of Troop 829.

Lewiston-Porter Retired Elementary Teacher Elves Susan Zolnier, Margo Spring and Nancy Orsi delivered the collected gifts to the Youngstown Village Center gym for the Christmas Baskets Program.

This week, program volunteers are finalizing the various food baskets and gift boxes for delivery to needy families in the River Region.  Volunteers are still needed to help deliver the gift and food baskets starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16. Those interested can contact steering member Colleen Johnson Summerville at 716-531-6701. (Submitted photo)
