Press Release: Orleans/Niagara BOCES

The Orleans/Niagara BOCES Building Trades program has been helping out Habitat for Humanity throughout the school year. The organization has asked Matt Anastasi’s class for one more favor. They wanted to know if the class, which is located at the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center, would be willing to use their skills on a smaller scale and make a playhouse for them to auction off at the Orleans County Fair to help them raise money.

“Of course we are more than glad to help out,” says Mr. Anastasi. “The students love helping out on something that benefit the people in this community. It is a great organization.”
