MARCY -- December is the season for giving and a local organization did just that Friday.

The Utica Maennerchor held their annual benefit concert in support of Operation Sunshine.

The Observer-Dispatch’s Operation Sunshine provides food, clothing and toys to underprivileged children and their families during the holiday season.

Locals came out to the concert that included both German and English Christmas music.


Utica Maennerchor secretary, Judy Schwenzfeier, tells us she enjoys giving back to local charities that need the money for the Christmas season.

"We just want to spread the Christmas cheer to those people that are not capable of having the finances to do that them self,” Schwenzfeier said. “We are a very giving society and we welcome everybody, and we just want to give back to the community who's given so much to us."

According to Judy, the organization has donated to nearly 25 charities in the Mohawk Valley over the years.
