Crèche members and volunteers will be asking community members to “Help a Needy Child” by making a generous donation to their canisters this Friday and Saturday. Crèche volunteers will be tagging at Brigiotta’s Fairmount Ave. Storefront on Friday, August 4th and Saturday, August 5th, and at Walmart on Saturday, August 5th. Crèche is a local women’s not-for-profit organization that has been serving the needs of area children and their families for 117 years. Some of its many projects include providing pediatric medical equipment and other items for UPMC Chautauqua WCA Hospital, cribs, beds, baby items and clothing for newborns and children, gifts and baskets at Christmas time, as well as funds for children to attend area summer camps, to name a few. Since Crèche is a totally volunteer organization, 100% of the monies raised by the group go toward helping children in these much needed capacities throughout the year. The upcoming Tag Days is Crèche’s major fundraising effort. Please give generously when you see the canisters decorated with “Crèche children.” You may also help by sending a financial donation to: The Crèche, Inc., P.O. Box 0601, Jamestown, NY 14702-0601.
