Local Companies Donate Gifts to Children in Need

On Friday, Binghamton NYSEG employees partnered with Coughlin & Gerhart to continue a holiday tradition of providing gifts to children in need.

For more than 25 years, the companies have been working together to make local holidays brighter. This year, more than 100 presents were collected for children in the area. Employees say they look forward to this tradition every holiday season.

"It's important to give back and there's children that don't have a lot. And so this is just our way of supporting the children in the community who might not have a gift under the tree Our employees feel that way, they get very excited in November when we start getting the gift tags," said Rebecca Jarrett, Member of Binghamton Area Employees Booster Club.

The Family and Children's Society received the clothing items, games and toys and will distribute them into the community.
