“Many individuals and families turn to Catholic Charities Emergency Services to meet their basic needs,” stated Pezzella-Pekow. “The program provides assistance with medical costs, utility payments, diapers and formula, clothing and personal hygiene items as well as furniture and household items. And our Food Pantry is busy year-round, not just during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Every dollar that’s raised helps so many in need in Oswego County.”
