Community Support for Stuff-A-Bus Appreciated

To The Editor:
I extend my sincerest thank you to everyone that graciously supported our annual Stuff-A-Bus campaign.  Thanks to the generosity of so many caring community members, organizations and businesses 1,786 students received many of the supplies they need to begin the school year.

From pencils and notebooks to backpacks and thumb drives, volunteers along with members of the Oswego County Teachers Association (OCTA), distributed more than 15,600 school supplies to students throughout Oswego County.

This would not have been possible without the efforts of Stuff-A-Bus committee members JoAnn Conzone, Laurie Kelly and Helen Hoefer; the dozens of businesses and offices that had school supply collection bins; Kingsford Park Elementary School Principal Mary Volkomer for hosting the distribution; and the many others who helped to make this year’s Stuff-A-Bus campaign such a success:

City of Oswego Firefighters Association Local 126

Fulton Lions Club

Burritt Motors

The employees of Pathfinder Bank

The employees Key Bank

School District Coordinators

Employees of the Oswego and Fulton Walmart

Oswego County Opportunities



On behalf of the students and their families that benefited from the Stuff-A-Bus campaign … Thank You!
