“Our employees and Exelon got behind this project one hundred and ten percent,” said Mary Greeney, OCFCU vice president, member services. “And we all enjoyed sharing the wealth of items collected in our community for the second straight year. We wanted to come up an easy way for people to help make sure the kids of Oswego County will stay warm this winter.”

OCFCU serves more than 11,000 members throughout the county.
