Local Girl Makes Wise Decision For OCO


FULTON, NY – Thanks to the kindness and generosity of a young girl Oswego County Opportunities will be able to make a family’s Christmas a little more joyful.

Hanna Wise sorts through presents she is donating to Oswego County Opportunities.  Hanna used her allowance to purchase the presents when she went shopping on Black Friday.

When 10-year-old Hannah Wise set out to do her Christmas shopping on Black Friday she decided to share her spirit of holiday with others and added a few items to her list.

Using her allowance and a little help from mom and dad, Hanna picked out a number of gifts that she would donate to Oswego County Opportunities.

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!”

OCO, Inc is a private, non-profit agency that has been supporting communities throughout Oswego County since 1966 and touches the lives of more than 20,000 people annually.

It is a United Way of Greater Oswego County member agency.

    Yes, Hannah, there is a Santa Claus, and you are his helper! I am extremely impressed with your spirit of the season. Hopefully, when these children grow up, they will remember what you did for them, and play it forward in their own lives. I think that this is how it works. And, strangely, the people who give the most are often those that live in more modest communities!

    I can see you are already having a great holiday season!
