Flood relief gift registry

BINGHAMTON — Flood victims who suffered catastrophic damage are invited to apply for the Thanks for Giving gift registry campaign, created by Broome County Council of Churches, its Faith in Action volunteer program and the local Boscov’s.

The campaign relies on the generosity of individuals and groups in the community to buy gifts on a flood victim’s wish list or contribute money — and 100 percent of all donations will go directly to the family or person with the greatest flood-incurred needs.

Flood victims must be already be sponsored by a Thanks for Giving coordinator or can call (607) 724-9130, ext. 318 to learn more. Donors can call the same number, log on or and enter Registry # 480011031925, or mail checks to Broome County Council of Churches, Attn Thanks for Giving #010 (in memo line), 3 Otsinengo St., Binghamton NY 13903.
