Catholic Charities Accepting Applications For Thanksgiving, Christmas Food Baskets

FULTON, NY – With the holiday season fast approaching, the Emergency Assistance Program at Catholic Charities of Oswego County is currently planning their annual distribution of Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets.

Last year, more than 400 families enjoyed a healthy holiday feast thanks to the efforts of Catholic Charities.

Emergency Services Program Director, Helen Hoefer, anticipates an even larger demand for food baskets this year.

“With the amount of people we are serving during our regular food distributions and at our food pantry, we may very well exceed the number of applications we received last year. With the help of our hard-working volunteers and some generous donations from the community, we will hopefully be able to meet all the requests we receive. I would like everyone to be able to enjoy a complete holiday meal,” she said.

Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets are complete with a turkey and all the trimmings and enough food for the family for three days.

Those interested in applying may do so in person at Catholic Charities’ Food Pantry, 365 W. First St. in Fulton.

Applications will be accepted Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m.

Applications for Thanksgiving baskets will be accepted now through Nov. 11 or until quotas are met.

Applications for Christmas baskets will be accepted now through Nov. 23 or until quotas are met.

Applicants can receive one basket per household and may choose either Thanksgiving or Christmas.

For more information, call Hoefer at 598-3980.

Catholic Charities of Oswego County serves all people in need regardless of their religious affiliation.

Primary funding sources for Catholic Charities of Oswego County’s programs are the United Way of Greater Oswego County, the Diocesan Hope Appeal, the County of Oswego and private donations by individuals and local companies and organizations.
