Assemblywoman Jane Corwin Announces 

Annual Western New York Food Drive

 Assemblywoman Jane Corwin (R,C,I-Clarence) is pleased to announce that her annual Western New York Food Drive will run from Wednesday, April 10, 2013 to Friday, May 10, 2013.  Corwin is proud to team up with The Clarence Food Pantry, Food Bank of Western New York and St. John’s Outreach in Lockport, as well as a number of Erie and Niagara County libraries, to collect canned goods and non-perishable items.  All of the items donated will go to families here in Western New York. 

 “After the holiday season, donations of food and clothing begin to slow down and charitable organizations run low on supplies.  We want to help those organizations in Western New York that help those in need, by continuing to build awareness for hunger, and aiding them in re-stocking their supplies,” said Corwin. 

 “The local libraries in Erie and Niagara counties have been so gracious in their participation and allowing us to use their facilities as donation drop off locations.  We had such great participation for our Winter Coat and Clothing Drive this past December, and it showed the compassion of our community,” Corwin continued. “I appreciate the positive response and I am very proud of the character that is displayed by Western New Yorkers.”

Celebrating the Importance of Reading &  Dr. Seuss with Children at Clarence Book Store

Dr. Seuss had such a way of making reading come alive and captured the hearts of children and parents everywhere. I loved having the chance to share a book that I used to read to my kids with a group of children on Friday. Every year on March 2, the world celebrates the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. Seuss, who passed away in 1991, would have been 109 this year. Thank you to Kim Krug at the Clarence bookstore, Monkey See, Monkey Do…, for letting me share one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books, The Cat in the Hat.
