SCQBT FoundersSchoharie County, N.Y. - This month, eleven years ago, tropical storm Irene wreaked havoc along the watershed of the Schoharie Creek, devastating rural towns along the valley. Flood damage affected business, private homes, farmlands, and more. In response, thousands of New Yorkers banded together to help those in need.

One of those heroes was Ginny Schaum, local resident and former student of the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her dedication to helping community dates back to some of her initial career work where she created clothing for people with disabilities, taking into consideration the frailties of the customer as well as the capabilities of their caretakers.
