On this morning’s community update segment with the United Way for Cortland County:
Executive Director Christella Yonta told WXHC the Cortand Cares COVID Fund has surpassed $16k, which continues to fund local programs in the area serving residents during their time of most need.
According to Yonta, food continues to be the largest request in the community at this time, with various entities partnering to deliver food boxes throughout the County – including Harford, Marathon, Cincinnatus, Homer, and McGraw.
The Office for the Aging is making regular wellness checks on and providing masks to seniors, as well as their caregivers.
United Way funding also made possible the planning of an upcoming Baby Supplies Drive Thru coordinated by the Child Development Council, set for next Thursday (April 30), from 3-5 pm in the parking lot of the NYS State Grange off Clinton Ave in Cortland.
That event is meant to help anyone who may have experienced a loss of income or resources caused by COVID-19 and needs
infant formula or diapers for their little ones.
Registration is required by the end of the day Monday (April 27), available online with more information by clicking here.
