Children’s Fund, originally established by employees of the Oswego County Department of Social Services, has forged a partnership with United Way of Greater Oswego, Catholic Charities of Oswego County, and other agencies including Toys for Tots to consolidate their efforts and see to it that children in need in Oswego County have a memorable Christmas.

“Toys for Tots provided a real boost to the Children’s Fund,” said Helen Hoefer, supervisor of Emergency Services at Catholic Charities. “They recently delivered a whole truck full of toys and it couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. We are doing the best we can to meet the tremendous demand this year and their generous donation will go far to help make a lot of children very happy come Christmas morning.”
