March for Meals Benefits Seniors

I wish to extend my sincerest thanks to everyone who helped make Oswego County Opportunities’ March for Meals event such a success. Thanks to the support we received from the community and the many volunteers who helped deliver the meals our March for Meals campaign not only raised awareness of OCO’s Meals on Wheel program, it also raised almost $1,000 which will proved 400 meals for the many seniors who take advantage of this popular program. In addition 1,208 people pledged to support our efforts to end senior hunger by 2020.

I would also like to thank our many volunteers who helped us deliver meals to the seniors during our campaign including those who participated in our Mayors for Meals day: Sandy Creek Town Supervisor, Lonnie Crast; Pulaski Chief of Police, Ellery Terpening; Director of Oswego County Office for the Aging, Larry Schmidt; Oswego City Tourism Director, Fred Crisafulli; Phoenix Mayor, Anthony Fratto; Oswego County Legislator, Terry Wilbur of Hannibal; Hannibal Mayor. Fred Kent; Fulton Mayor, Ronald Woodard;
Fulton Fire Commissioner, Allan DeLine; Fulton Fire Chief, Anthony Gorea; 1st Ward Fulton Alderman, Thomas Kenyon; Deputy Supervisor for Parish, Fred Swartz; Mexico Mayor, Terry Grimshaw; Oswego County Legislator, Ron Sakonyi of Constantia;
OCO employees; Senior Nutrition Director, Amy Roland; Health & Nutrition Director, Ellen Holst; Director of Information and Compliance, Betsy Copps, Deputy Executive Director, Sarah Irland, and Executive Director of OCO, Diane Cooper Currier.
