I was pleased to read a piece of good news in a recent Poughkeepsie Journal issue. Thanks, Journal, for printing an article about a good deed being done in Fishkill. A group of people have organized a volunteer effort to refurbish and repair a house so it can be sold for a decent amount of money. That money will then be used to help pay for the education of two orphaned boys.
These boys, who lived on Broad Street in Fishkill, had both parents pass away within a few years of each other. The house had fallen into disrepair, and these volunteers are working to get it into sellable condition. I believe they will be doing this through August 30, so please stop by and help. The house is across the street from the library, which has a container for monetary donations for these two boys.
