Youth Philanthropy Council doles out awards

NORWICH – Throughout the year, the 12 seniors and juniors who make up the Norwich High School Youth Philanthropy Council have been working under direction of the Chenango United Way to learn about the importance and the impact of philanthropy in the community.



This year-long learning process came to a conclusion last week, when the group of students – with monetary support from the Chenango United Way and the Community Foundation for South Central New York – announced their final allocation decisions during the annual YPC awards ceremony. This year, the YPC disbursed $10,000 to three different non-profit organizations in the county. Funds were allocated to the Norwich Family YMCA in the amount of $5,000, $3,000 to Roots and Wings of Chenango County, and $1,600 to the Taste ‘n’ See Soup Kitchen in Oxford.
