OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego Minor Hockey Association Pee Wee II team is doing its part to make the holiday season happier for families in need by supporting Catholic Charities’ Let’s Give For A Kid program.
Members of the team are collecting new, unwrapped toys now through Dec. 21 at the Cullinan Ice Rink located near Kingsford Park School and the Crisafulli Ice Rink located at Fort Ontario in Oswego.
Team members will deliver the toys to Catholic Charities the afternoon of Dec. 21.
They will also assist Catholic Charities’ staff members in sorting and preparing the toys for distribution.
Executive Director of Catholic Charities of Oswego County, Mary Margaret Pezzella-Pekow praised team members for their efforts and is looking forward to meeting them when they deliver the toys.
“We have received a tremendous support from the Oswego Minor Hockey Association this holiday season. They have held drives for our food pantry to help us provide Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and now their efforts to collect toys for our Let’s Give For A Kid is just tremendous. I am impressed with their efforts and the support they have received from their coaches and their parents. We can’t thank them enough,” she said.
For more information on the toy drive or to donate a toy for the Let’s Give For A Kid program, contact Catholic Charities, 598-3980.
