(WAVERLY, NY) The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) announced a recent one time donation of $1,250 received from the Waverly Community Chest in order to purchase chairs for their lecture hall. SRAC is located at 345 Broad Street in downtown Waverly, NY and is home to thousands of local Native American artifacts, a gift shop and a lecture hall that hosts many different events throughout the year.
SRAC’s cofounder and executive director Deb Twigg said, “The Center has been using chairs donated by the Guthrie Clinic in 2007 that while nice to look at are very cumbersome to maintain, move and store in SRAC’s multi-use area. SRAC has also had to find chairs for their outdoor events. You have to remember that our volunteer staff median age is around 60 - 70 years old, and it became evident that we needed to figure out how we could afford lighter folding indoor/outdoor chairs that are more easily stored and setup for the many types of community events that we have. The Waverly Community Chest is a wonderful group of people who really do care about their community. We are so happy that they responded to our request and are excited to get our new chairs.”
The Waverly Community Chest has been serving Waverly, New York and surrounding communities for over fifty years. The nonprofit organization and its sister agency, the United Way of Bradford County, were established to help needy people in the Valley area. The Community Chest survives with the generous donations from numerous citizens and businesses in the Valley. Several local agencies depend upon the Community Chest as they struggle to meet needs and provide services to our communities.
