OCO Nutrition Services partners with National Meals on Wheels and Subaru for the 2017 Subaru Share the Love Event
November 16, 2017, through January 2, 2018
As part of this year’s Share the Love OCO Nutrition Services is offering special activities and events at its Dining and Activity Centers and is collecting non-perishable food items in the lobby of OCO’s main office, 239 Oneida St. in Fulton; its kitchen site at 5871 Scenic Ave, in Mexico; and each of its six Dining and Activity Centers. All food donations will be used to fill the shelves of our food pantry and the Blizzard Bags that provide emergency food supplies for snow-bound seniors.
On December 2, 2017 OCO Nutrition Services will be participating in both the Christmas in Mexico parade and the window decoration contest along Main Street, and we have partnered with Kinney Drugs in Mexico where we have a senior giving tree decorated with gift tags that indicate items that seniors in the greater Mexico area are in need of. Gifts will be distributed to the seniors in need in our area before the Holidays.
OCO staff with be checking in on those that receive home delivered meals through its Holiday Calling initiative. For some of our seniors the only person they have contact with at their home is the person delivering their meal. Our staff and volunteers will be calling our seniors to see how they are doing. It’s nice to hear a friendly voice over the holidays and our seniors truly appreciate it.
In addition, with the support of the many enthusiastic Subaru owners OCO Nutrition Services organized an aerial photo of various models of Subarus to spell out the word "love". Photo credits to I Heart Oswego and PR Rep John DeRousie for capturing the amazing photos and to the Fulton Fire Department for allowing us to use the firetruck bucket to get those shots.
