More than 200 workplaces hold annual campaigns in Steuben and Chemung counties to support United Way of the Southern Tier. In large part, it is because of these companies and Campaign Coordinators that United Way of the Southern Tier is able to support the critical programs and services in our community.
Providing the opportunity for your employees to get involved in our community through donating to the United Way allows them to participate in causes that matter to them most. However, the workplace campaign is about more than just raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community and allows them to be a part of a larger mission to create a thriving community.
On behalf of the people who will benefit from your hard work and generous gifts, thank you. It takes people like you who join hands, open their hearts, lend their muscle, and find their voice to influence the condition of all. Thank you for thinking of we before me.
Special Message for Workplace Special Events Fundraising during COVID-19
United Way of the Southern Tier appreciates all you do to raise funds for our community.
For your safety and ours, we are seeking to limit the amount of cash that will be handled by all parties this year.
We know some businesses will hold special workplace fundraisers that involve collecting cash from employees. If your business is planning such a fundraiser, give us a call so we can talk through our new digital payment options including text-to-give. Call: 607-936-3753.
Finally, our office remains closed to the public, but we are happy to make arrangements for contactless drop-off of checks. Please call 607-936-3753.
This dramatic poster illustrates the social issues that affect our community. We win by living united. By forging enduring partnerships. By finding new solutions to old problems. By engaging the best resources. And by inspiring individuals to join the fight against a common foe: our community’s most daunting social needs. What will you LIVE UNITED against today?
This poster is a reminder that even a small donation – just $5 a week – can make a big difference to a person in our community. The information on the poster is local and is based on information compiled by United Way of the Southern Tier.
