On Monday, November 16, 2015, AT&T External Affairs Director Ed Bergstraesser presented a gift of $5,000 to the Pawling Resource Center to provide holiday meals for families in need including turkeys and hams. Joining Mr. Bergstraesser for the presentation was Dutchess County Sheriff Butch Anderson, New York State Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor, whose office and staff also delivered several bags of food collected in a food drive, and Pawling Town Supervisor Dave Kelly.
