Stephen E Garner Day of Caring September 21, 2012

On Friday September 21, 2012  the Stephen E. Garner Day of Caring provided 150 boxes of food products, or 12,000 pounds of food, to the Food Distribution Network of Tompkins County. Without the tireless efforts of the United Way organizers and volunteers we would not be able to reach our neighbors in need during these challenging times. Please accept our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude.
