DELHI, NY (12/18/2015)(readMedia)-- Each year CSEA Local 638 collects gifts for local families experiencing difficult times. This year CSEA is sponsoring a family with three children and a couple with health issues with a partner who has not been able to work.

Judy Lindsay, president of CSEA Local 638, said "It's so heartwarming to see the campus community come together to support this important event and season of giving."

Dawn Morganstern, who chaired the committee, noted that many gifts were collected and over $600 in monetary donations were received. "This year we received a special monetary gift from the SUNY Delhi chapter of the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) that held a pasta dinner to raise money to buy gifts for local children. When they heard of the family we were sponsoring, they decided to donate the funds to our collection."

"CSEA Local 638 has such a great time shopping for the families and wrapping all the presents each year," Lindsay added. "To be able to help these families this holiday season and to picture the joy and excitement on the children's faces on Christmas morning is priceless."
