ONC BOCES Mechatronics OPEN House this Thursday, February 6 /Otsego County Chamber Weekly Update

Dear Members,

The Otsego County Chamber is now offering online training for the NYS annual sexual harassment prevention training to make it  convenient  and cost effective to comply. 

New NYS law requires all public and private employers to provide annual sexual harassment prevention training along with written sexual harassment prevention policies. In the recently enacted sexual harassment law, all employers must implement annual training and specific procedures that meet or exceed requirements provided by the NYS Department of Labor and the Division of Human Rights.

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
