More than 8,000 pieces of apparel will be donated to flood victims in Montgomery, Schoharie, Delaware and Fulton Counties as the result of a partnership between Carhartt and Curtis Lumber Company of Ballston Spa.
Curtis Lumber will distribute the pants, coats, gloves and shirts that are being contributed by Carhartt, which makes durable clothes for workers in rugged situations. Carhartt is headquartered in Dearborn, Mich.
“Being part of the area for over 120 years, we saw the damage and knew we just couldn’t stand by,” said Jon Hallgren, vice president of Curtis Lumber. “Our goal was to help those in communities who need it the most.”
He attributed their involvement to Assemblymen George Amedore, R-Rotterdam, and Peter Lopez, R-Schoharie.
Flood victims in Montgomery County should contact their local fire department and in Schoharie County people should contact the fire department at New Holland Tractor in Schoharie.
