OCO’s Meals on Wheels program delivers meals to senior citizens of Oswego County, directly to their home.

Blizzard Bags are an annual opportunity for community members to donate and pack a day’s worth of meals in brown paper bags, which are distributed in case meal delivery is not possible during inclement weather.

Work-study students at CiTi’s Fourth Street School in Fulton packed approximately 55 Blizzard Bags.

CiTi teacher Mary Throne said this is the most her students have ever packed in the five years she’s done the activity with her class.
