This holiday, remember it is better to give than to receive.  While you are out shopping, please grab a couple of extra nonperishable food items to help the Salvation Army's Holiday Food Basket program.  The baskets will help make the holiday season a little easier for local families. 

Many families rely on school breakfast and lunch programs to help feed their families.  With school being out for approximately two weeks, families will have to make up those meals affecting the their grocery budget.  This holiday season let's help families not worry about being hungry.  Give if you can.  Blue donation barrels are set up at four NBT Bank locations in Oneonta, N.Y., including Wall Street, Oneida Street, East End, and Southside offices.

Townsquare Media will be broadcasting today from 11am to 1pm at both East End and Oneida Street locations accepting nonperishable food donations.
