When Michaud resident, Roxanne Stuart heard that the United Way’s Success By 6 program was collecting school supplies for children in need in Oswego County she knew that she had to find a way to help. As a retired teacher she knows how important the early learning years are and was eager to support the event.
As President of the Michaud Resident Council, Stuart helped organize two fundraisers to help support the Success By 6 “Stuff-A-Bus” campaign. She encouraged residents to submit their favorite recipes for a Michaud Residents Cookbook. A portion of the sales was donated to the “Stuff-A-Bus” campaign. In addition Stuart planned a second fundraiser that consisted of a bake sale and 50 / 50 raffle in the morning and a dunking booth in the afternoon. Michaud Administrator, Mike Shafer and his staff took turns sitting in the dunking booth as residents, their families, and other staff members made donations to have a chance at dunking them in the water. All proceeds from the event were donated to the “Stuff-A-Bus” campaign.
“It was a fun event,” said Director of the Success By 6 program, Bonnie Holmes. “The staff and the residents had a great time and their generous donation helped us purchase additional school supplies for Oswego County school children.”
