Catholic Charities’ Let’s Give For A Kid program provides toys for children in need in Oswego County, and given the current economic conditions the agency is anticipating a large demand for this year.

“We want to be able to make the holidays special for as many children and their families as we can. To do this we are reaching out to the community to support our efforts by donating new, unwrapped toys. We have donation boxes at various businesses and organizations throughout Oswego County where toys, as well as wrapping paper, tags and gift boxes can be left for pickup. Donations will be accepted at any of these locations, as well as at our offices at 365 W. First St.,” explained Executive Director of Catholic Charities of Oswego County, Mary-Margaret Pezzella-Pekow.
