Where We Live: Hamburg


This year’s Warm the Children program helped 370 youngsters in the Hamburg, Eden, North Collins and Lake Shore areas.

“Without our donors, we would not have funds to send families with shoppers to purchase new, winter clothing for children in need,” explains Elizabeth Angelbeck, who coordinates the program for the Rotary Club of Hamburg and Town of Hamburg Lions Club.

There were more than 130 volunteer shoppers who accompanied families to Sears in the McKinley Mall to shop for the clothes. The program has ended, but tax-deductible donations are still being accepted. Checks made payable to Warm the Children Fund may be mailed to Evans Bank, 5999 S. Park Ave., Hamburg, NY 14075.
