On Saturday afternoon, motorists heading north on Central Avenue were greeted by two Dunkirk High School students at Fourth Street.
The students, braving the windy, wintry conditions, were collecting donations for the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton annual Christmas basket program. Though they were cold, they were volunteering their time to make someone's holiday just a little bit better.
Of course, these students are not alone. Others, including Salvation Army bell ringers and those helping at Chautauqua County Rural Ministry, are already looking ahead to the holidays in an area where the need is always great.
So what do you do if you happen to see someone shivering while ringing a bell or collecting funds for a Christmas basket program?
Very simply, contribute if you can.
