OSWEGO, NY Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Members of the United Way of Greater Oswego CountyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Campaign Cabinet are busy putting the final touches on the agenda for one of the anticipated events of the fall, the annual campaign kick off breakfast.
Scheduled for Sept. 9, the event will be held from 8 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 9 a.m. at the American Foundry, 246 W. Seneca St.
Executive Director of the United Way, Melanie Trexler, said that the Campaign Cabinet, under the direction of chair Jonathan Daniels of the Port of Oswego Authority, has been working diligently to ensure that theÃ‚Â breakfast is an enlightening and inspiring event that will provide community members with a better understanding of the positive impact the United Way has on Oswego County.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our Campaign Cabinet is excited about this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s campaign and are 100% committed to achieving our goals.Ã‚Â They are looking forward to sharing their enthusiasm for the United Way and encouraging others to support our mission of improving lives by empowering our community,Ã¢â‚¬Â added Trexler.
Comprised of a cross section of concerned community leaders, the Campaign Cabinet works hand in hand with the United Way staff as they plan, implement, and oversee the annual campaign.
Whether itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s helping to establish employee giving campaigns, arranging company presentations, or speaking with civic groups and other organizations, the members of the Campaign Cabinet are dedicated to sharing the United WayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mission with the community.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do it without them,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Trexler. “They are the driving force behind our campaign.Ã‚Â Their commitment to the United Way and their ability to inspire their fellow community members is what will make this campaign a success. We are truly appreciative of their efforts and are proud to count them among our supporters.Ã¢â‚¬Â
