The totals are in for this year's Week of Caring that took place September 21-25.

Together the community contributed 2,573 lbs. of food and household items to be distributed to our neighbors throughout Tompkins County.

Thank you to everyone who contributed, including our wonderful volunteers led by Joan Barber from the Ithaca Kitchen Cupboard, who directed sorting, staging and distribution of the gifts.
Thank you to CFCU Community Credit Union, M&T Bank, Cornell, and Wegmans for collecting items at their locations, making it easier for their employees and customers to be part of the this important event.
Nominations for the UWTC’s Youth and Philanthropy (YAP) Program are now open! This program is made possible through funding from the Triad Foundation.

Consider nominating a high school junior or senior to participate in this program which teaches students about community needs and assets, and helps high school students gain an appreciation for charitable giving, community service, and civic engagement.

Students will meet virtually most Thursdays from 4:30pm-7:30pm in October and November to participate in team-building activities, review grant applications, and award $25,000 to local community organizations.

If you are interested in nominating a student or would like more information please contact Emma Terwilliger at or go to

Nominations are due by Wednesday, October 7th, 2020.
Thank you to all the supporters of the Moment of Movement, including the lead sponsor Ithaca Tompkins International Airport and Ithaca Marriott Downtown on the Commons, as well as to media sponsor Ithaca Voice.
