Kevin Dusenbury’s Gift of Memory Program, which benefits Potter County’s Christmas House, is currently in its 16th year.
Through Dusenbury’s business, the Virgil L. Howard Funeral Home in Shinglehouse, local residents can contribute presents in memory of their deceased loved ones to the organization, which distributes gifts to nearly 1,200 Potter County children and elderly during the holidays.
Last year, well over 800 gifts were collected at the funeral home and presented to the Christmas House for distribution to needy families.
Those wishing to make donations of new, unwrapped toys can call Dusenbury at 814-697-6570. Donations will be collected until Monday, December 5.
