FULTON, NY – Thanks to the kindness and generosity of a young girl Oswego County Opportunities will be able to make Christmas a little more joyful for those in its SAF Shelter.
When 12-year-old Hannah Wise set out to do her Christmas shopping she decided to share her spirit of holiday with others and added a few items to her list.
Using her birthday money, along with money she earned babysitting and doing extra chores, Hanna picked out a number of gifts that she would donate to Oswego County Opportunities for distribution to those in its SAF Shelter.
When she delivered the gifts to representatives of OCO they were pleasantly surprised and praised her for her efforts.
“What a wonderful gesture,” said Jo-Lyn Phillips of OCO. “Hanna’s thoughtfulness and her concern for others is an excellent example of the true meaning of Christmas. We are very appreciative of Hanna’s donation and I’m sure that our consumers who receive these gifts will be very happy when they open them up on Christmas day. Yes, there is a Santa Claus!”
