NORWICH – The Christian Neighborhood Center of Norwich, Inc., a.k.a. The Place, has reached nearly 50% of their goal for their annual fundraising campaign. The annual campaign, orchestrated by The Place’s Fundraising Committee, is the largest fundraiser the organization has during the year. The campaign began in early November, with a mailing to the organization’s many supporters and past donors.
The Place’s annual campaign is crucial to help fund the annual operating budget and capital expenses of the organization, which is comprised of several different programs that serve youth in the greater Chenango County area. The programs receive funding from many sources, including federal, state, and local government, area churches, the Chenango United Way, local foundations, estate donations, local businesses, and service contracts with other organizations.
