FULTON, NY Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Oswego County Opportunities recently recognized its ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Services for its outstanding contribution to the OCO in-house campaign in support of the United Way of Greater Oswego County.
Each year OCO presents a special trophy to the agency service unit with the highest percentage of participation in the campaign.
For the 2009/2010 campaign year the honor went to OCOÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Services.
United Way campaign coordinator for OCO Jo-Lyn Phillips was impressed with the level of participation from ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Services and was happy to present them with the trophy.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The employees in this work unit really put forth a remarkable effort. One facility, Pinewoods Head Start Center, led the way for the service unit, achieving a participation rate of more than 70 percent. Their generosity helped us to exceed our overall agency goal as we raised more than $13,000 for the United Way of Greater Oswego County. An amazing accomplishment when you consider the current economic environment,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Phillips.
OCOÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Services operates Head Start and Universal Pre-K sites in Cleveland, Phoenix, Oswego, Fulton, Pulaski and Williamstown as well as day care services at the Discovery Day Care Center in Phoenix.
