OCSD/United Way distribute school supplies

The Oswego City School District is proud to be a collaborative community.
In partnership with the United Way of Greater Oswego County, the district helped distribute thousands of dollars’ worth of school supplies to children entering grades kindergarten through 12.
Students and their families lined up for the event as early as 7 a.m., two hours ahead of the distribution start time, to ensure they obtained a starter pack of school supplies and backpacks. Laurie Kelly, a teaching assistant at Fitzhugh Park Elementary School and co-chair of the event, said the community’s generosity has made the event possible. The United Way’s Stuff-a-Bus event, a United Way breakfast during Harborfest and several OCSD Jeans Days brought in over $6,000 in monetary and supply donations.
About 200 families have been assisted at the distribution event each year. Kelly said the abundance of donations also enables families who have yet to register their children for school to receive some of the supplies. The extra materials may also help classroom teachers replenish certain supplies, as needed.
As each family checked in and parents or their children carefully selected the perfect backpack, many attendees expressed their gratitude to the volunteers who made the event possible.
