About The Paper Chain
The Paper Chain is a charity organization run by Amber Williams that focuses on the community coming together to help out those in need. Each year residents of the Wallkill Community “adopt” children within the area that are less fortunate and provide gifts so that Christmas can be merry and bright!
According to The Paper Chain’s facebook page, the organization is begun by students with the hope to inspire and encourage other students to get involved in their communities and begin to take pride in helping others. “It is about getting everyone involved.”
Every child receives a personalized stocking that is filled with gifts and clothing as well as a toy purchased specifically for them based on their wish list submission. Additionally, The Paper Chain sometimes purchases gifts for the entire family to enjoy such as DVD players or movies! Last year residents within the Wallkill Community provided gifts to approximately 61 children. What a wonderful way to show how much the community cares!
Each year, Wallkill Valley Federal Savings & Loan is proud to support this wonderful organization! We believe in community and understand The Power of Together. Together we can make a difference within our community! If each person who is able adopts one child this holiday season what an amazing impact we can have on our community! People giving back to their community can be transformational because it makes both parties feel a little bit better about the world we live in! Together we can make a difference. Merry Christmas to all indeed!
