We have all seen this ad.. It brings tears to your eyes. This is happening in your community. That means here in Otsego County!
You can help a child in you community for $183 a year only .50 cents a day through the Backpack Program. Thankfully because of caring individuals most schools in our County provide this need to as many as the donations allow. More is needed to continue this effort.
My concern today is, there's still a gap during the summer months and holidays. How can we meet that need ? Oneonta with the help from Catholic Charities and numerous volunteers runs a summer program.
Rural towns can not, due to lack of funds and volunteers.
Below is a flyer that explains the Backpack program. Remember , children are innocent and they are our future.
