Sullivan County Division 1 Donation

At their December monthly meeting, members of Sullivan County Division 1 made a donation to Sullivan West Project Care. The $400 donation will be used for toys for tots within the Sullivan West school district.  More importantly, some of the money will be used to fund the purchase of bookbags, winter clothes, and to help a local family recovering from a devastating house fire.
