Shoeboxes for Seniors has partnered with the Office of the Aging to distribute shoebox gifts to seniors in need. 
Their food service delivers over 230 meals to homebound seniors once a week within our Otsego community. 
Our community wide collection will run from November 16th through December 16th with several drop off sites throughout the Oneonta area. 
If you don't get the chance to visit one of the sites prior to December 16th, you can bring your shoebox to the holiday reception party on December 16th at the Green Earth in Oneonta. 

Join us for a fun time at our Holiday Reception Party on December 16th at the Green Earth in Oneonta.
