The Oneonta Clothing Guild program was started by the Oneonta Retired Teachers Association to help families in the Oneonta School District with new clothing items for children enrolled in an Oneonta School. This program is broken into 2 parts: OCG 1 and OCG 2. OCG 1 provides socks, underwear and sneakers to children in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade. OCG 2 provides snow pants and snow boots for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. These programs run from September to June, while school is in session. This program requires the child to be enrolled in the Oneonta School District, Kindergarten through 5th grade/12th grade. Applications can be found on the website and emailed, faxed or dropped off to The Family Service Association, located at 277 Chestnut Street, Oneonta, NY 13820.
