"New Yorkers have a long tradition of generosity and charity, particularly during the holidays when we have always come together to support our neighbors and those who need our help the most,” said Cuomo. “As we celebrate with family and friends this holiday season, I encourage all New Yorkers to remember those less fortunate and pitch in whatever they are able by donating clothing, toys or school supplies to help bring some much-needed relief and cheer to families in need.”
The Office of General Services (OGS) has set up drop-off locations across the state for businesses and individuals to bring the toys, coats and school supplies, which will be distributed to families in underserved communities throughout the state.
The Binghamton-area drop-off location is the State Office Building at 44 Hawley St., Binghamton.

Take advantage of online holiday deals| December 16, 2013
And as the 2013 Flexible Spending Account (FSA) plan year also comes to an end, FSA enrollees may be interested in learning about the FSA Store on the SUNY Perks site, which sells discounted, FSA-eligible products. The FSA Store can be accessed by logging into SUNY Perks and selecting “ONECart” from the horizontal menu across the top of the screen. ONECart allows shoppers to make purchases from several different merchants with just a single checkout, so while shopping for FSA-reimbursable items, members can also add items to their “cart” from other featured online stores, including Regal Cinemas, Best Buy and Expedia.
