Community Relations Committee is asking for your help

On August 17th at the Wilton NY Headquarters of “Operation Adopt a Soldier”, a fire broke out resulting in a total loss of the building contents which included donations and more than 200 packages that were ready to be shipped to Troops serving overseas.
