This morning (March 4) was the final week of the United Way for Cortland County’s 2020 Gas & Grocery Giveaway, sponsored by CFCU Community Credit Union.
Joining Vinnie Bellardini in the studio to announce the two $500 winners were United Way Executive Director Christella Yonta and CFCU’s Adria Weiss.
In addition to sponsoring the giveaway, CFCU held a workplace campaign with a 100% employee participation rate and is also a regular supporter of the annual Day of Caring food drive.
The weekly giveaways were part of United Ways 2020 Fundraising campaign, which Yonta said so far raised $230k.
Community members can still support their efforts toward achieving this year’s goal of $280k at CortlandUnitedWay.org.
Every cent donated is directed to local programs and nonprofits that help Cortland County residents in need.
Allocation applications went live today for eligible organizations seeking grant funding through the United Way.
