It’s that giving time of the year

The holiday season is a time for giving. For many years, the HFM BOCES Teachers Association has been providing holiday baskets containing a meal and extra food for needy families in the tri-county area. This year, the TA provided 51 holiday baskets.

Cheryl Ostrowski and her HFM class at Gloversville Middle School shopped for the needed food items. They then spent two days putting the baskets together and preparing them for delivery. However, they started preparing for this project much earlier. The class collected boxes for the food donations and arranged their classroom to accommodate the large amount of food.

This outreach would not have been possible without the support of the Gloversville Hannaford Supermarket, Aldi’s Market, Gloversville Middle School, the GMS custodians and cafeteria staff, community members and members of the HFM family. Their support is greatly appreciated.

The Teachers Association provides holiday baskets every year. If you are interested in participating with the holiday baskets, making monetary donations, or would like more information, feel free to contact Lynn Brown at
