The Junior League of Poughkeepsie was recently featured in the Hudson Valley Press!
Not only could area youth be seen chatting with police officers, asking them questions and checking out the various equipment they use on the job, but they also had the opportunity to get free, donated books. In an attempt to promote literacy, The Junior League of Poughkeepsie, an organization of women who contribute to their community in a host of altruistic ways, were on hand with an impressive amount of books to hand out to children.
“This was a great event tonight, said Mallory Maggiacomo of the Junior League of Poughkeepsie. “The kids and the parents really enjoyed themselves, and everyone just seemed so excited to be out here having a good time.”
