Week of Caring: September 21-25, 2020

September is “Food Security Month,” and United Way of Tompkins County (UWTC), together with several partners, is providing an opportunity for community members to assist in meeting higher demands on our food pantries and nonprofits due to COVID-19 impacts on our community. What was traditionally a day’s event will become a “Week of Caring” from Monday, September 21 to Thursday, September 24, 2020. 
 
This year we are looking to provide our local food pantries with household essentials- hygine products and cleaning supplies. The availability of these essential items has been noted as an unmet need in our community,  and truly make a difference to individuals and families in need.  This year UWTC aims to do our part to support our neighbors by meeting this unmet need. 
 
The week will culminate with the Stephen E. Garner Day of Caring on Friday, September 25, 2020 with the distribution of all donations to local food pantries in Tompkins County.
 

This list of participating locations will be updated throughout the week
