The Jamestown Schools PROMISE Fund recently donated hundreds of winter clothing items in all sizes to Jamestown Schools.

“The greater Jamestown community demonstrated its enduring generosity during this fall’s Winter Clothing Drive,” said John Zabrodsky, Jamestown PROMISE Fund Advisory Board chair. “The diversity and amount of items collected was truly remarkable. The PROMISE Fund thanks all who donated.”

The clothing was collected through the fund’s recent winter clothing drive. The donations of coats, boots, hats, gloves and scarfs will be distributed to children in the Jamestown schools to help keep them warm this winter.

“We are very excited with the amount of winter clothing that was collected by the Jamestown PROMISE Fund’s drive,” said Chad Bongiovanni, Jamestown Public Schools director of student services. “These donations will help so many of our kids have a much warmer winter. We hope by providing the clothing to our kids it will help them get to school every day, even in the coldest weather. We are very happy that the PROMISE Fund recognizes the need we have in our district to provide proper winter wear for our children.”

The JPS PROMISE Fund was founded in 2016 as a charitable, non-endowment fund via the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation.

Its mission is to expand the financial capacity of JPS through private, tax-deductible fund-raising activities. For more information about making a tax-deductible donation to the Jamestown PROMISE Fund visit promisefund.org.
