This time of year it's easy to forget that there are plenty of people around us who need a helping hand.  That's why the Southside Mall is holding a Community Month of Giving, all throughout the month of August.

To participate, bring either school supplies, canned goods, crafting supplies, or cleaning items to the Southside Mall this month.  Donation boxes are set in center court in the Mall for your convenience at the Mall.  These items will be donated to to four amazing organizations for distribution to those in need: Catholic Charities of Delaware, Otsego, and Schoharie Counties, The Salvation Army USA, Opportunities for Otsego, and The Family Service Association.

Oneonta is a wonderful community, a place where everyone should be able to thrive.  Help toward that goal by giving back to our community through this event.  To find out more you can visit the Southside Mall Facebook page or call (607) 432-5478.
