Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Aids OCO SAF Program
Senior Resident Director Kevin O’Conner and employees of the Syracuse branch of Merrill Lynch presented SAF Community Response Coordinator Stacie France and staff of Oswego County Opportunities Services to Aid Families program (SAF) with a donation of winter clothing for OCO’s SAF shelter. Several of the staff at the Syracuse branch, including the coordinator of the drive Shelly LeClair, live in Oswego County and are familiar with, and appreciate, the work that SAF does.
“This is the second year that we have received a donation from Merrill Lynch,” said France. “We are incredibly grateful to the team at Merrill Lynch for this generous donation. Many adults and families who enter our domestic violence shelter come with various needs, so we’re thankful for donations like this that allow us to help survivors in our community.”
