A WORD FROM THE COMMUNITY

Thank you to The OSC Charitable Foundation for their generous sponsorship and truck use for Explore & More’s Touch-a-Truck event! Generous, local, family-owned companies like OSC are what makes Buffalo so wonderful.
Explore & More
I can’t thank The OSC Charitable Foundation enough for partnering with us in the “Work of Mercy.” I am so grateful that we are one of your investments and commitments to the community!
Catholic Charities
So many children are unaware of the gift that they have received by generous organizations like OSC. Without your donations to the BISON Scholarship Fund, we would not have some of the kind, loving, and sweet kids that we have today attending St. Mark, so thank you!
