RENY donates to Blessings in a Backpack

OSWEGO – Lynn Grandjean (left), treasurer for the Retired Educators of NY of Oswego (RENY), formerly the Oswego County Retired Teachers Association (OCRTA), presents Beth Hallinan (right), a teacher volunteer for Blessings in a Backpack, with a check for $632 in support of the Blessings in a Backpack initiative. Blessings in a Backpack provides children with a backpack of food each Friday for them to have over the weekend. “Although we are unable to meet as a group our members mailed us their generous donations so that we can continue to help our community,” said Grandjean. “This time we chose to help children and Blessings in a Backpack was a perfect way to do so.”
