Nam Knights donation

Townsend receives donation of gloves

The Southern Tier Chapter of the Nam Knights donated 100 pair of fleece gloves to Townsend Elementary School on Thursday. 
The gloves are for when students’ gloves are wet or forgotten. 
The Knights were responding to a message that had read for parents, which reminded them to have students return borrowed gloves to the nurse’s office or playground aide when they were used for outdoor recess. Students in need of a new pair of gloves can also be provided with a pair to take home. 
Haggerty Ace Hardware also helped by selling the gloves to the chapter at cost.
