PHOENIX – Faculty, staff and administrators in the Phoenix Central School District continued an annual tradition this holiday season by donating to the United Way of Oswego County.
As part of a two-week effort, dozens of PCSD employees opted for payroll deductions and made other contributions to support the local United Way.
Their efforts netted more than $1,500 for the organization, which aims to stop hunger, help children and youth succeed, and improve the health and well-being of the community.
According to Nicole Covell, who helped spearhead the campaign on behalf of the school district, the generosity was truly a team effort. Employees in all departments and at all buildings participated in the effort.
“This district is incredibly caring about its students and its community,” Covell said. “The fundraising effort was fantastic, and all the money stays right here in Oswego County.”
