Despite the ongoing battle with the state to keep open Western New York Children’s Psychiatric Center in West Seneca, PEF members who work there still took the time to give back to the community during the last phase of winter.art

Stephanie McLean-Beathley, council leader of PEF Division 167, said more than 100 children are in foster care and approximately 75 in residential care at the GA (Gustavus Adoluphus) Family Services Center located in Jamestown.

“This marks our third year of giving back to the community and helping these children stay warm. We collected boxes of hats, gloves and scarves, and two large boxes of gently used coats and warm clothing,” McLean-Beathley said. “While it has been a mild winter so far in the Buffalo area, children still need to be bundled to prevent winter illnesses.”

The donation was made February 7, which brought smiles to the children.

PEF President Wayne Spence said, “This hat and scarf drive has become a tradition at WNYCPC. It is another example of how PEF members remain dedicated, not only to their careers, but how they raise the bar to help the children and people in their communities.”          — Deborah A. Miles
