Gram Lorraine Children's Christmas Program

Gram Lorraine Children's Christmas Program-Named in honor of the quintessential gramdma, Lorraine Crouse, who died far too soon in an avoidable accident, this program provides between 800 and 1000 area children with a minimum of four items of clothing in their favorite colors, new winter coats, sneakers or boots, and a toy, book or game of choice. Sponsors, which include individuals, churches (Universalist in Little Falls), businesses (Lexington and Feldmeiers), organizations (Frankfort Kiwanis;Herkimer Lions Club), spend $80-$100 contributing in the process an estimated $100,000 to the local economy (over $2 million since the program's inception as the Adopt-A-Child Program in 1981). Participating schools include Benton Hall Academy, Poland Elementary, Fisher Elementary (Mohawk), Barringer Rd. Elementary(Ilion), Frankfort-Schuyler Elementary, Mt. Markham Elementary, Hogue Elementary (Ft. Plain), Owen D. Young Elementary, BOCES Migrant Worker Program and the ARC (Herkimer).
