ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — As temperatures begin to get colder, the Elmira Community Scarf giveaway is underway.
“My friend Amanda was busy making these hundreds of fleece scarves,” said Brent Stermer, 2nd District Councilman of Elmira. “She was distributing them in different places and then she had said to me ‘Do you want some of these scarves?’ and I said ‘Sure! we have lots of people in Elmira that could use these scarves.”
Over 180 free hand-made fleece scarves are being placed all over parks in the City of Elmira for people in need.
“So what we’re doing is just taking them and putting them on playgrounds and parks so the people that need scarves can come and get a free scarf,” Stermer said. “They’re brand new and freshly made with love.”
