Despite a difficult economic environment in 2010 and with great thanks to the support of individuals and cooperate donors, The United Way of the Southern Tier announced today at the Chemung Canal Trust Company in Elmira, that the 2010 Community Campaign set an all-time high record of $4,533,643.
Ron Bently, President of Chemung Canal Trust Company said, “The United Way is vital and important organization in our community.” With this being said, the funds raised from this campaign will be invested in health and human service agencies in our community. One of these agencies that will continue to be supported by the United Way of the Southern Tier is 2-1-1 HELPLINE (a service of the Institute for Human Services). According to Ron Hatch, President of the Southern Tier, 2-11 HELPLINE has been “built, sustained and will continue to be involved as community resource.”
Other organizations that benefit from this record setting campaign include the Health Ministries of the Southern Tier, Chemung County Meals on Wheels and the CA$H programs.
The United Way of the Southern Tier is a locally managed non-profit organization focused on effectively mobilizing the caring power of the community to help people improve their lives. United Way of the Southern Tier is the largest non-governmental provider of funding for health and human services in Chemung and Steuben Counties.
