The past year has been a very difficult one, for several reasons. First and foremost, the pandemic has caused financial hardship for many in the North Country, especially for those who lost their business, or their job, or have had to work several jobs to make ends meet.
We are also mourning the loss of a dear friend and tireless champion for the Potsdam Holiday Fund. In July, our longtime president, Pam Yurgartis, passed away from breast cancer. We will miss her terribly, but hope that we can honor her memory by carrying on the good work that she did so well. We are thankful to those of you who made a donation to honor Pam’s memory.
Last year, the Potsdam Holiday Fund helped 475 children from 186 families that included 308 adults. In addition, 124 senior citizens received food through our program. Thus, a total of 907 individuals were helped by the Potsdam Holiday Fund last year.
We hope that you will choose to give to the Potsdam Holiday Fund this year so that we can continue to help our neighbors in need during the holiday season.
