Lyme Consolidated teacher, Kim Strachan, along with her family, lost all of her treasured Christmas ornaments in a house fire when she was young.
Now, on Sunday, local folks will be gathering to make ornaments and assemble starter kits for new holiday decorations for New York families. Also, donations of gently used ornaments, lights and unwrapped toys will be accepted.
Strachan contacted the borough president in Staten Island and he is touched by the idea and eager to accept the donations.
