Jefferson’s Ferry Donates $3500 in Merchandise and Dash Donation to Town of Brookhaven Youth Bureau Interface Program

Residents of Jefferson’s Ferry life plan community resoundingly answered the call for holiday donations from the Town of Brookhaven’s Youth Bureau INTERFACE Program, which distributes toys, games, sports equipment and warm winter accessories to children in need.

Jefferson’s Ferry residents Art Romita, Pat Boone and Louise Grinere wasted no time in reaching out to fellow residents and just as quickly personal checks and other donations poured in. Where at one time residents would have gone to the stores to shop, this year the organizers went online to shop for them, taking advantage of sales and free shipping and therefore increasing the number of items they were able to purchase. Overall the residents donated more than $3,500 in cash and merchandise to the program.
