JOHNSTOWN — The United Way of Fulton County, in collaboration with Fulton County NBT Bank branches, collected and distributed more than 30 coats, both new and gently used, and hand-knitted, as well as new hats, gloves, mittens and scarves to the children in need within the Greater Johnstown School District, Gloversville Enlarged School District and Broadalbin-Perth School District.

Collection boxes were placed in the local NBT branches during the month of December and taken to the schools right after Christmas, according to United Way executive director Lisa Pfeiffer.
