FLX Gives: 

FLXGives, an initiative of the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes, Inc., is a 24-hour online celebration of the Finger Lakes region. It connects generous community members with the causes they care most about. It is a day to celebrate all that the Finger Lakes are and the critical role nonprofits play in making our community great. This year’s giving day will be held from 6:00pm on November 11th to 6:00pm November 12th. With your support, Tanglewood can continue to provide a home for our many animal ambassadors as well as educational opportunities for children and adults!
