OSWEGO, NY – The United Way of Greater Oswego County presented Oswego County Government with the Leadership & Commitment Award at the United WayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Annual Meeting held March 17 at the American Foundry.
The Leadership & Commitment Award is given annually to a company or organization that are leaders in educating their employees on the needs of the community and inspiring them to support their local United Way campaign.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“This organization works daily to serve the needs of our community.
