OSWEGO – When it comes to appreciating the importance of volunteering, no one understands it better than the United Way of Greater Oswego County.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of the United Way and play a major role in the success of many of the United Way’s initiatives and its annual campaign.
As part of its annual meeting, the United Way will pay tribute to its many volunteers.
“We truly value our volunteers,” said Resource Development Director Ali McGrath. “Without them we would not be able to maintain the many partnerships and collaborations that we have established over the years. Whether it is serving as a campaign coordinator for our annual campaign, helping out at our Stone Soup Luncheons and Stuff A Bus Breakfasts, or serving on our Community Investment Committee, the time and effort that we receive from our volunteers is vital to allowing us to continue our mission of ending hunger, helping youth succeed and building healthier communities. We are proud of our volunteers and I look forward to honoring them at our annual meeting.”
“Special guests include local government officials, partnering United Way agencies, companies that have collaborate throughout the year with United Way and our Leadership givers, contributors who give $500 or more and have become members of the Admiral Society,” added McGrath.
Sponsored by Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield and Community Bank, N.A. the United Way’s Annual Meeting and Salute to Volunteers will be held March 14 at noon at the American Foundry, Route 104 West (behind Fajita Grill) in Oswego.
In addition to honoring the United Way volunteers the program for the United Way’s annual meeting will also recognize some exceptional individuals and businesses whose efforts help support the United Way of Greater Oswego County’s Annual Campaign and the work of the United Way’s member agencies.
The United Way’s annual meeting is open to the public.
The cost to attend the event is $15.00 per person and includes lunch.
