Sunday, December 5th

The Oneida Area Daycare Center will be hosting our second annual “Breakfast with Santa” on Sunday December 5th at Oneida City Recreation Center in Oneida, NY from 9 AM to 12 PM. This event will help raise money for our local daycare center to continue serving the children of Oneida and Madison counties. The Center is a not for profit Center which provides childcare and education to children ranging in ages from 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Many of the children that attend the Center are considered low income and government subsidies are never enough to offset the costs of the childcare. In addition, the Center continues to need to update the facilities such as roof repairs, HVAC and heating updates and general furniture that the children use on a daily basis given the age of the building
