The employees of Corning Inc., near Canton recently raised $19,000.74 for the United Way of Northern New York in support or area nonprofits.
“Every year Corning puts together a team of enthusiastic employees to run the campaign and the results are spectacular,” said Bob Gorman, CEO of the United Way of NNY. “They also are the first major campaign completed every year, which gets our campaign season off to a great start.”
More than $13,000 was raised through payroll deduction, and another $5,600 was raised through special events.
The United Way’s overall goal this year is $775,000 in support of 40 nonprofit partner agencies in Northern New York.
