The Portville Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary extends its appreciation to the community and local businesses for support of our third annual school supply drive Aug. 18-19 at the Portville Fire Department.

This year, we were able to help out 191 local students thanks to the generosity of the community. A special thank you goes out to the Portville Fire Department, Willoughby’s Portville Antiques, Walmart, the Weston’s Mills Fire Department Auxiliary, the Portville American Legion, Portville Bookstore, Adam & Eve Hair Salon and the Portville Methodist Church for their donations.

We also had collection boxes throughout the local business community. I would also like to thank the Portville American Legion Auxiliary and the members of the Portville Fire Department for helping to hand out the supplies.

Three years ago, when we first started this project, we helped out 17 students. It has grown over the years and next year we are expecting to help out more students with the continuation of support from our community.

You can donate to our cause at anytime; send to P.O. Box 169 Portville, NY 14770 Att: School supply drive or contact me at (716) 307-2284.
