Think Global, Act Local
That was the message at the 78th Annual Celebration of United Way for Cortland County. The event honored and thanked local donors and volunteers for all that has been done through United Way programs to help people in Cortland County over the past year. Keynote speaker Dr. Barbara Connor, Director of Urgent Care for Cayuga Medical Center and medical director for the John Dau Foundation inspired the crowd with stories of her mission trips to war torn South Sudan to treat malnutrition and other health challenges connected with famine and extreme poverty. Dr. Connor also travels to El Salvador with Mission of Miracles to offer assistance and medical treatment.
We honored our volunteers who do so much to help their community, especially our 2017 Campaign Chairs Nicole Cottone and Brenda Cottone and their campaign team. Thank you to all the businesses, schools, and other organizations that ran employee campaigns and contributed corporate donations to the campaign.
2017 Applications for Community Impact funding available. Details coming soon.
