OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego County Salvation Army officers and volunteers are working very hard to make up for the shortfall in last year’s Christmas kettle campaign.
Toward that end they will be providing parking and a chicken barbecue during Harborfest.
All profits from both projects will be used to support the food pantries, soup kitchens and other services to people in need throughout Oswego County.
Parking in the Corps’ lot at 73 W. Second St. will be available all day on July 25 and July 26, for a reasonable fee.
Barbecued chicken dinners, including ½ chicken, potatoes, baked beans, and roll, will be available on July 25 from 3 p.m. until sold out and on July 26 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Bottled water and baked goods will also be available for sale.
On August 12, members of the Zonta Club of Oswego will be donating, preparing, and serving another of their famous roast beef dinners as part of our Guest Chef Dinner series.
It will be at the Oswego Citadel with dining room and take-out service available from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Planning is already well under way for this year’s Red Kettle Campaign.
The need is to raise $106,000.
There will be opportunities for individuals and families, as well as organizations and groups of all kinds to lend a hand.
Call the special Red Kettle line at 315-207-3359 to volunteer or ask questions.
