Community Corner

Continuing our holiday-giving tradition from last year, we filled boxes with goodies and shipped them to troops overseas in time for Christmas. Our employees donated items for these “Boxes of Boodle,” which were stuffed with toiletries, candy, canned goods, coffee, tea, hot cocoa, games, socks, etc.

This past holiday season, we also participated in Toys for Tots, a program started 70 years ago by the U.S. Marine Corps. Bottini lent a hand to Santa by donating 100 gallons of fuel to heat the Toys for Tots Holiday Train, which traveled through the Hudson Valley to pick up and deliver donated toys.
