Cornell United Way aims to raise $10K per week to fight hunger




In a recent video message, Vice President Ted Dodds and University Librarian Anne Kenney recently announced a goal to raise $10,000 a week for the next eight weeks to help the United Way of Tompkins County (UWTC) fight the hunger crisis in our community. UWTC recently expanded the Hunger and Food Security Fund to address this growing need.

In Tompkins County alone, an estimated 13,280 men, women and children – more than 13 percent of the population – are classified as food insecure. Your contribution – no matter how small – will make a difference. You can also designate a gift to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, the Friendship Donations Network, the Tompkins County Food Distribution Network, Loaves & Fishes, and Foodnet Meals on Wheels through the UWTC website. If you prefer to donate without using a credit card go to our How To Donate page and download a pledgecard or begin payroll deduction.
