CHENANGO COUNTY – In an effort to educate the public on the role of the Chenango United Way and what is done with the money raised during the organization’s annual campaign, the CUW held the first of what they hope will become an annual event: The “Day of Caring.”
On Saturday, volunteers from all over the county gathered at the Norwich Family YMCA and learned about the tasks they would be undertaking that day. Executive Director Elizabeth Monaco thanked the volunteers for coming out and explained the purpose of the Day of Caring event. “Our goal today is to provide an understanding of the role of United Way funding in the community. Without the support of our donors and the community, we would not be able to raise the money we need to support these organizations,” Monaco said.
