In recognition of October being Domestic Violence Month, employees from the Oswego County Department of Social Services donned purple shirts, to raise awareness of domestic violence in Oswego County and support the efforts of Oswego County Opportunities’ Services to Aid Families program. To raise awareness and funds for SAF, DSS Senior Social Welfare Examiner Stephanie Hoxie, along with senior team members Linda Rebbette and Jackie Koster, coordinated a drive to sell purple T-shirts emblazoned with “Break the Silence…Stop the Violence” to DSS employees.
