Cooke community receives back-to-school donations

As students start their new school year at the George L. Cooke School, they were greeted with generous donations, such as folders, composition books, pencils, markers, tissues, glue sticks, book bags and much more. These donations came from the United Methodists Church of Monticello, Restoration Church in Monticello, Sullivan Correctional Facility, the NAACP and Mrs. Devantier of Livingston Manor.
