(Herkimer, NY – Dec. 2012) Herkimer County Community College’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa international honor society conducted a Hat and Mitten Drive to benefit the Gram Lorraine Christmas Project.
The Gram Lorraine Christmas Project matches sponsors with families in need, and provides toys and clothing to numerous children. The project is run through the Herkimer County Hunger Coalition. Phi Theta Kappa students exceeded their goal by collecting more than 150 items to donate to the project.
