    • Did you know that in 2022, 3rd graders in our region tested below the New York State standard for English language arts and math?
  • $5 A WEEK = Nutritious meals for local homebound older adults
    • Did you know more than 152,000 residents in our region are food insecure?
  • $20 A WEEK = Credit counseling for low-income people
    • Did you know 1 in 3 of our neighbors have limited resources to meet their basic needs?
