Kirkwood, NY (WBNG Binghamton) NYSEG employees and Coughlin and Gerhart, L.L.P. teamed up to provide holiday gifts to more than 100 children.

The NYSEG Booster team participates in a holiday gift program each year. Coughlin & Gerhart joined their efforts for 2013.

The Family and Children's Society collected a list of children in need and their wishes for the holidays.

Employees of NYSEG and Coughlin & Gerhart bought gifts including toys and clothing based on the tags created from the list. The tags included the child's sizes and gift ideas.

"I think we're helping more children than ever. It just seems like the amount of gifts grows bigger.. and everyone's hearts get bigger with their generosity," said Carolyn Mancini, NYSEG.

The groups held fundraisers throughout the year to help supplement gifts for the tags.

NYSEG has been participated in this program for over 25 years.
