By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Central New York Veterans Outreach Center is collecting items to make the holidays a little happier for some local veterans.

A gift and food drive is now underway right near Center Court in the New Hartford Shopping Center.

The organization is looking for non-perishable food items, new clothing, socks, hats, and gloves.

Teresa Fava-Schram, the organizer for the food and gift drive said, "It is all going to stay local, go to our local veteran community, and no one should have to worry about basic items around the holidays."

Donations are being accepted at the New Hartford Shopping Center through 6 pm Wednesday, or you can drop items off at the Central New York Veterans Outreach Center on Washington Street from 8 am until 4 pm Monday thru Friday.
