Fulton School Mentoring Creates Thanksgiving Greetings


FULTON, NY – Mentees and Mentors in the Fulton School Mentoring program recently designed Thanksgiving cards and placemats for Oswego County Opportunities’ Senior Nutrition Services.

The greetings were included with meal deliveries in the Fulton area.

Seniors visiting the nutrition site were greeted with table placemats designed especially for them.

The project was a great opportunity to show youth the importance of thinking of others during the holiday season.

The Fulton School Mentoring Program matches adult mentors with Fulton youth ages 8-15 and is a collaboration between Oswego County Opportunities, Inc., The Fulton Community Task Force, Catholic Charities of Oswego County and The Fulton School District.

If you would like to be a mentor or refer a student, contact Carol Ireland, mentor manager at 402-2093.

Just one hour a week makes a difference!

The Fulton School Mentoring Program is fully funded by a DJCS grant and serves students in the Fulton City School District.
