Day of Action

Please join United Way of the Southern Tier for a special community-wide Day of Action project to thank teachers and school staff for all the extraordinary work they have done to educate our children in a school year filled with pandemic protocols and distance learning. 

To participate, please hand-write a thank you note. Pick from the stationery templates at the bottom of this page or use any card or notepaper you have on hand.

Write a note from the heart. Tell teachers and school staff why they mean so much to you. A few sentences is all it takes to say thank you.

Drop off the notes during business hours Monday-Friday (or mail them) to United Way of the Southern Tier in Corning by June 18, the Day of Action: 
United Way of the Southern Tier
300 Nasser Civic Center Plaza, Ste. 220
Corning, NY 14830

United Way of the Southern Tier will deliver the notes to schools in Chemung and Steuben counties.

Questions? Call 607-936-3753 weekdays during business hours.
