The Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Board of Realtors recently ended their 2019 collection drive for cold-weather items, including hats, gloves, scarves and socks. Board of Realtors members recognized a community need for these items and set up collection boxes throughout both Chautauqua County at various real estate firms. In Dunkirk, the cold-weather items were donated to Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc. where they will be distributed to those in need. The donations were accepted by Diane Hewitt-Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc.
