Helping Hands of Hannawa Falls gave away 235 Thanksgiving baskets and turkeys prior to the holiday. This year some of the baskets included not only turkey and all the trimmings, but also some fresh venison donated by the Department of Environmental Conservation. Helping Hands Executive Director Tom Chappell said the donation would ‘make for many authentic Thanksgiving feasts for local families in need of a little extra help.’ Above, from left, Helping Hands (HH) volunteer coordinator Florance Wright, NYS DEC ECO Scott Atwood,and HH volunteers Mike Welch and Jim Deere.
