United Way to Kick-Off Annual Campaign

8/29/2017

Staff of the United Way of Greater Oswego County meet with United Way Campaign Cabinet Chairperson Dick Delaney of Novelis Fulton, NY – United Way of Greater Oswego County officially begins its 2018 Annual Campaign with a kick-off breakfast on September 13 at the American Foundry in Oswego. The event will introduce the theme to this year’s United Way Campaign; “Together We Stand United.”

The new theme, “Together We Stand United” emphasizes the strength of working together and the positive impact it has on the mission of United Way of Greater Oswego County.

It may sound cliché, but working together is far more effective than working individually,” said United Way Campaign Assistant Kay Duguay. “Coming together as a community for the common good is a benchmark of United Way. Our mission of ending hunger, helping youth succeed and building healthier communities is achievable if we all work together in whatever capacity we can.

There are many ways to support United Way. For some it’s volunteering their time and talents to further the success of the many programs United Way funds. For others it’s through donations, whether individually or as part of workplace campaign, these donations go far in providing funding for programs that are vital to our mission.

Duguay added that the United Way’s Campaign Cabinet, consisting of community volunteers Sue Cahill (Pathfinder Bank), Todd Fiorenza (Exelon Generation), Clark Stanton (OVIA), Rob Rolfe (Harmony Financial), and Chairperson Dick Delaney (Novelis) have put together a kick-off agenda that highlights the positive impact that United Way and the many programs it funds has on those they serve. To emphasize that impact the committee reached out to Oswego County Department of Social Services Commissioner Stacy Alvord.

Alvord, who holds a BA in Public Justice from SUNY Oswego and a MS in social work from Syracuse University, has work in the social services field for almost four decades. Alvord has advocated at the national, state and local level for high impact programs that reach the poorest and most vulnerable individuals.

Stacy made her first donation to United Way thirty-seven years ago and is still a strong supporter of our efforts and the many United Way funded programs offered through our partner agencies,” added United Way Resource Development Director Ali McGrath. “The combination of her extensive experience and her knowledge of our communities will make for an enlightening presentation on how United Way is vital to the quality of life in Oswego County.

The United Way of Greater Oswego County 2018 Campaign Kick-Off Breakfast will be held September 13 from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. at the American Foundry, 246 West Seneca St. (behind Fajita Grill on Route 104 West) in Oswego. The Breakfast is open to the public; the cost to attend is $15 per person and includes a sit down breakfast.

Registration is available online at www.oswegounitedway.org, through Venmo, via email at aliunitedway@windstream.net, or by calling your United Way office at 315-593-1900. Please RSVP by September 6th.

United Way Day of Caring Benefits OCO Home

6/23/2017

United Way Day of Caring Benefits OCO HomeFulton, NY – More than a dozen volunteers and several local businesses donated their time and talents and displayed the true spirit of the United Way’s “Day of Caring,” to the benefit of a local home for disabled adults.

United Way’s ‘Day of Caring’ is a nationwide event,” explained Ali McGrath, resource development director for United Way of Greater Oswego County. “We haven’t had a ‘Day of Caring’ of this size in several years. I’ve wanted to do one ever since I joined United Way as an intern. Now, thanks to Rich Burritt, it was able to happen. It was amazing to see it finally come together!

McGrath collaborated with Rich Burritt of Burritt Motors, and a host of other businesses, to help beautify Oswego County Opportunities’ group home in Minetto. The home is one of several that are operated by OCO. These homes serve as a permanent home for individuals with a developmental or other intellectual disability.

Employees of Burritt Motors joined Dan Dorsey Jr., Kevin Dorsey, Christian Morgia of Eagle Beverage, Executive Director Patrick Dewine and staff of United Way, and OCO employees in beautifying the home’s yard and storage barn.

It was amazing!” said Andrea Griffis of OCO. “The group spent the entire day here. They raked and cleaned the yard, landscaped and planted a flower garden, painted our ramp to the house and cleaned out, painted, and did some repair work to our storage barn. They even cut down some trees near our parking area and spruced up the sitting area in our front yard. Those that live here are now enjoying the flower garden, relaxing in the shade and are thrilled about our new patio furniture, picnic table and gas grill that Burritt Motors supplied us with. I can’t thank them enough for all that they did.

While volunteers made up the workforce, it was the generosity of several local businesses that supplied materials. “We received outstanding support from businesses that went above and beyond in making this Day of Caring project possible,” said Burritt. “Nathali’s Nursery and Farm Market in Red Creek and Ontario Orchards supplied the flowers and plants; Castiglia Lawn Care and Lindsey Aggregates provided mulch and landscaping stone; Enwright Roofing assisted with the cleanup and removal; and Eagle Beverage not only had employees that volunteered but also supplied water to keep us all hydrated!”

The ‘Day of Caring’ was a huge success,” added McGrath. “It was the epitome of our mission in many ways. We hope to mobilize the community to volunteer, raise awareness and support solutions that address needs of the community. The ‘Day of Caring’ was just that. It encouraged people to come together and give their time and effort to a cause that maybe they weren’t privy to before. It brought attention to a huge part of our community, the group homes that serve adults with special needs. Leaving at the end of the day and seeing the residents of the house enjoying their yard and new lawn furniture was priceless.

Above are some of the many volunteers that worked on the project.
