The Dunkirk PBA together with the Community Bank Central Ave. Branch in Dunkirk made a donation to the Chautauqua County Office for the Aging to help with the Santa for Seniors Holiday program. The Santa for Seniors Program delivers Holiday gift bags that includes meals, clothing items and daily personal need items to Senior Citizens in our area who would otherwise have a lonely Holiday Season.  Community Bank recently chose the Dunkirk Police Benevolent Association (PBA) as the recipient of a $250.00 Community Service Grant. The PBA happily decided to match the Community Bank Grant amount and chose the Santa Seniors Program as the recipient of $500.00 to assist Office For Aging with purchasing items for this year’s Christmas Bags.

In addition to the donation once the Holiday Gift Bags are packed and ready to go City of Dunkirk Police Officers will be delivering them to and spending some time visiting with over 40 Senior Citizens just in our Community during the Christmas Holiday.

The Dunkirk PBA wants to thank Community Bank for partnering with us on this donation that will help the Office for Aging give a gift to so many of our Senior Citizens during the Christmas Holiday. We also want to thank the Chautauqua County Office for Aging for letting us be a part of this wonderful program.
