OSWEGO - Fall has arrived in Oswego and surely will soon be followed by cold weather. The Oswego Rotary Club is responding by launching its annual Make a Difference winter garment collection during the month of October.

New or gently used winter garments such as coats, scarves, hats, mufflers, insulated boots, mittens, and gloves in good, clean condition are needed. All sizes through adult are needed but the greatest need is for children through pre-teen sizes.
