To the editor: (of The Cortland Standard)
We wish to extend a sincere thanks to the Cortland community for supporting our collection of school supplies for McArthur School in Binghamton, which was flooded during Hurricane Irene. Our students stood outside Wal-mart on Saturday, October 22 and asked folks to buy certain items that are needed at McArthur. People responded in an incredibly generous manner. We raised $640 and collected two enormous boxes of supplies. Our students learned a great lesson from all of you: that a community can work together to help one another. We thank you for your support.
