FULTON, NY – Supporters of the United Way of Greater Oswego County filled the Parish Center at Holy Trinity Church in Fulton as the community came together to enjoy a delicious meal of soup, salad and breads at United Way’s “Stone Soup Too” Luncheon. The United Way’s Annual Stone Soup Too Luncheon provided member agencies and their employees with an opportunity to get together and share a meal with the staff and board members of the United Way as well as community members who proudly support the efforts of the United Way.
“Our Stone Soup Too Luncheon was a great success, with more than 125 people in attendance we raised more than $1,250 and collected 20 of boxes of food for our local food pantries. I want to thank the community members who attended, and our many caring sponsors who donated the food for our luncheon: Mimi’s, Blue Moon Grill, and The Foursome Dinner for providing our soups; Dunkin’ Donuts for the ‘Boxes of Joe’; C’s Farms for our salad fixings; Red Baron who provided the rolls; Kathy’s Cakes, Joe’s Corner Market, and Springside at Seneca Hill for donating our delicious desserts; and the Struppler’s Shurfine Market for contributing to our food drive,” said Lois Luber, resource development director for the United Way of Greater Oswego County.
“I would also like to thank the Fulton Lions Club for their donation of $500, Wal-Mart Supercenter in Granby for the $150 they collected during their food drive, and of course our hard working volunteers and committee members, who under the direction of chairperson, Steve Chirello, helped to make our ‘Stone Soup Too’ Luncheon a success,” Luber added.
All proceeds from the event, along with the food donations, will be donated to food pantries throughout Oswego County.
