Oswego County Church Pastors Tour New Oswego Salvation Army Facility

OSWEGO, New York – Pastors from the Oswego County church community gathered recently for a breakfast and tour at the Oswego Salvation Army’s new facility, which is currently under construction.

The Oswego Salvation Army is an important partner to our area churches and a significant resource for pastors in our community. The Oswego Salvation Army is currently raising funds as part of their $1.6 million “I Believe” capital campaign for building renovations and expanded services, and are asking churches within Oswego, Mexico and Pulaski to consider a gift to the campaign.

The Oswego Salvation Army has raised nearly $1 million of their goal for the campaign, primarily through the support of numerous corporate and individual donors within the Oswego community.

Phase I of the construction is scheduled to be completed in April 2010.
