Catholic Charities of Delaware, Otsego and Schoharie Counties is holding a fundraiser entitled: “Keeping our community warm one brick at a time.”

Catholic Charities of Delaware, Otsego and Schoharie Counties is holding a fundraiser entitled: “Keeping our community warm one brick at a time.” In response to the increased need for assistance with heating, Catholic Charities is raising funds for their Caring Connections Program for individuals who are struggling with rising heating costs.

In 2018 Catholic Charities assisted 125 households with over $37,000 in heating assistance to those in need. Individuals and families who are already struggling with unemployment, the rising costs of putting and keeping food on their tables, for gasoline for cars, along with rising heating costs, may be forced to choose between food for their families, heating their homes, or paying the rent. Catholic Charities would like to assist these families and individuals so that they are not forced to choose between basic needs.  Individuals, groups, or businesses can purchase a brick from Catholic Charities for $25.00.  Their name will be placed on the brick which is used to build the fireplace displayed in the agency’s Main Street window.

100% of the money raised will be used to help individuals, seniors, children and families stay warm this winter. To purchase a brick you can stop by our office at 176 Main Street, or donations may be mailed to our office at 176 Main Street, Oneonta, NY 13820. If you have any questions regarding this fundraiser or would like more information on Catholic Charities of Delaware, Otsego and Schoharie Counties, please feel free to contact the agency at (607) 432-0061, or visit their website at www.charitiesccdos.org

Oneonta History Center Openings February 1

 

Coming to the Oneonta History Center, 183 Main Street, in February are Julia Allidi's paintings of historic Oneonta and the first display in a monthly series called “Oneonta Collects History”.  There will be an opening reception on Saturday February 1 from 1 to 3 PM. The reception is free and open to the public. 

 

The paintings of Julia (Bertuzzi) Allidi (1911 – 2004) feature historic scenes of downtown Oneonta and of the Delaware & Hudson railroad. The paintings were donated to the Greater Oneonta Historical Society by her son John Allidi.   The paintings will be accompanied by images of the vintage postcards and photographs on which they were based.

 

The “Oneonta Collects History” series begins with Patrice Macaluso’s collection of the various objects she has found over the years buried in her yard off Chestnut Street. The articles in the “Things They Left Behind” display include marbles and other children’s toys, kitchen items, and several items thus far unidentified. 

 

Each month of 2020 will feature the personal collections of one or more local collectors. If you have a collection that you would like to display at the History Center, contact (607) 432-0960 or [email protected].
