DAY OF CARING 2019
Thank you to all who participated, volunteered, and supported Day of Caring!
We had a great time working together and gathering 3,000 pounds of food, which exceeded last year's donations. All food was donated to Tompkins County Food Distribution Network's 15 food pantries!

Joan is the Volunteer Coordinator for Tompkins County's Food Distribution Networks. Watch her message about how your donations make a difference in our community.

In honor of September being "Food Security month", UWTC will continue accepting donation of non-perishable food items through September 30th . You can also donate to food security by calling (607) 500- GIVE , via UWTC's website: www.uwtc.org or text the word LOCAL to 313131 and be directed to a giving page.
