I have lived in the Hudson Valley for my entire life. And I have worked in Hudson Valley radio for my entire adult life. One thing I've learned in all my years here is that the residents of the Hudson Valley are mighty generous. I've seen people who can not afford to donate drop money in our buckets. Here's another chance for you to show your generosity.

This Sunday, Dec. 9, from 4 pm - 7 pm, head to the Alley Kat on Route 9 in Wappingers Falls for the Kiwanis of Southern Dutchess County's Toy Drive for Love Holds Life. Bring a new unwrapped toy. There will be raffles, food, lot of good cheer and Santa! 

Love Holds Life helps children and their families battling cancer, on a national level from their offices right here in the Hudson Valley. Love Holds Life provides financial support for their medical treatments and expenses not covered by insurance. LHL’s ultimate mission is to ensure children with love and life.
