FULTON, NY – Area seniors participating in Oswego County Opportunities’ Home Delivered Meals program recently received a special gift courtesy of the employees of Constellation Energy’s Nine Mile Point Station.
Family and friends joined Constellation employees in preparing gift bags that included a number of personal hygiene items including; bottles of shampoo, body lotion, tooth brushes and tooth paste, Q-Tips, hand soap, Chap Stick and deodorant.
The bags were delivered to seniors in the Home Delivered Meal program.
“We were thrilled to receive the donation, said Christine Parks, support services manager and volunteer coordinator with OCO’s Senior Nutrition Services. “Our seniors loved the bags and were very appreciative. They especially liked the colorful pictures that the children of the Constellation Energy employees and their family and friends made for each bag. I commend the employees of Constellation’s Energy Nine Mile Point Station, along with their family and friends for their generosity and their concern for the seniors in our community.”
