The Ithaca Rotary Club wrapped up its 26th annual Share the Warmth campaign in mid-December. In collaboration with Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga, donations of new or gently used winter clothing were gratefully collected, sorted, and distributed across the area by volunteers from a number of sponsoring partner organizations.

Over the two-week distribution period in early December, 517 Tompkins County households received warm winter clothing through the annual Share the Warmth project—805 adults and 631 children. A total of 3,620 items—coats and snow pants, sweaters, hats, gloves and mittens, scarves, boots, and other cold weather gear—were distributed to those in need.

Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga and the Ithaca Rotary Club extend thanks to all Share the Warmth volunteers and partner organizations: the Ithaca, Dryden, and Trumansburg Rotary Clubs; Cornell University; Ithaca College; and Finger Lakes ReUse (whose truck fleet and staff picked up and dropped off the donated items).
