We are sad to announce the passing of one of our co-founders, Joseph C. Russo Jr.
From the Dunkirk Observer:
Many remember Russo as a selfless, charitable man who put others’ needs before his own. He and Owen founded the RO Foundation in 2010, a popular, local not-for-profit intended to assist patients and their families with unexpected travel expenses incurred from visiting treatment centers for long-term illnesses.
Memorial contributions may be made to the RO Foundation in care of the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation, 212 Lake Shore Drive West, Dunkirk, NY 14048. The RO Foundation is a fund of NCCF.
