HERKIMER – Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES special programs students recently made donations to the Herkimer-Mohawk Food Pantry and the Double H Ranch, which is a camp for children with serious illnesses in Lake Luzerne.

Throughout the 2016-17 school year, Herkimer BOCES special programs students in the classrooms of Mary Tomaso and Erica Pendrak collected used printer toner cartridges from around Herkimer BOCES. They were able to turn the cartridges in to FundingFactory, and received money in exchange that they split between the two causes.

“They collected it and worked for it,” Tomaso said. “They’re thinking of others.”

Students delivered one check in person on Thursday, July 20, to Shirley Haman, Mohawk Reform Church coordinator for the Herkimer-Mohawk Food Pantry, and are mailing the other check to Double H Ranch.

“Every little bit helps,” Haman said. “For every $1 donated, the food pantry can buy at least $5 of food.”

Haman told the students how important the food pantry is to her and thanked them for their support.

“This is a mission for me that I’ve been working on since the 1980s,” she said. “There are an awful lot of children and older people that rely on this pantry.”
