Local businesswoman donated handmade children’s clothing to Firetree Place
WILLIAMSPORT – On Thursday, December 28, 2017 Linda Sosniak, a children’s and fabric-craft business owner in Picture Rocks donated thousands of dollars worth of girl’s
dresses, tops, slacks, sweaters, robes, doll clothes, hair accessories and boy’s robes,
sweaters, and vests to Firetree Place (FTP) in Williamsport. The clothing is handmade,
by Sosniak, and retails for an average of $15.00 per item.
Ms. Sosniak explained that she is donating to FTP after becoming more aware of their
mission. “I know that there are a great many organizations in Lycoming County to give
to, but because of Firetree’s mission to help under-privileged children, I knew that they
would be the right group to distribute the clothing.”
“Now just seemed like the right time to give,” she said, “I am slowing down my clothing
business to concentrate on civic and political opportunities for me. By handing over this
inventory to Firetree, I am pleased to know that I am supporting their efforts for families
