(Queensbury, New York) December 22, 2020 – Tri-County United Way distributed a Delta Airlines donation of more than 1,000 travel blankets to 15 local food pantries and shelters. As the temperatures drop and the corona virus pandemic continues to create hardships for local families, the gift of warmth from Delta’s blankets has been a welcome surprise for many. The blankets were distributed in holiday baskets from local food pantries and the first class travel blankets are now covering the beds at local shelters.
“We are so grateful to The Salice Family Foundation for sharing Delta’s gift with the Tri-County United Way. Their generosity and support during this challenging year allows us to continue helping struggling local families,” said Peter Aust, Interim Executive Director.
