OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego Minor Hockey Association Tyke members are doing their part to make the holiday season a little brighter for those in need by supporting Catholic Charities’ Let’s Give For A Kid program.
On three consecutive Saturdays, Nov. 20, 27 and Dec. 4, Tyke members will be collecting new, unwrapped toys from 8 to 10 a.m. during their practice at the Cullinan Ice Rink located near Kingsford Park School.
The toys will be donated to Catholic Charities of Oswego County’s Let’s Give For A Kid program that provides toys for children in need in Oswego County.
Stacie Roberts of Catholic Charities was pleased to hear that Oswego Minor Hockey Association was willing to support the Let’s Give For A Kid program.
“I am impressed at the children’s enthusiasm for this project. Their coaches and their families should be very proud of them. I look forward to receiving their donation and I’m sure that the children benefiting from their efforts will be very grateful on Christmas morning,” said Roberts.
Registrations are currently being accepted for those interested in joining the Oswego Minor Hockey Tykes.
The group will also host a “Bring a Buddy Day” in January.
