United Way of Tompkins County: Week of Caring

Friday, September 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.

The UWTC welcomes the donation of shelf-stable food, household essentials such as toiletries and cleaning supplies, school supplies, and pet food and supplies.

Donations can be dropped off on the Cornell campus; look for the Cornell Catering truck with the Week of Caring banner on the following days:

  • Sept. 23, 3:30-6 p.m.
    Sage Hall Parking Lot, corner of Campus Road and East Avenue
  • Sept. 24, 7-9 a.m.
    East side of A Parking Lot, just off Jessup Road
  • Sept. 24, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
    East side of the East Hill Plaza parking lot

A comprehensive list of all participating locations, along with the hours they will accept donations can be found at

All items, no matter where collected, will be distributed to Tompkins County pantries and human services nonprofits by the end of the day on Friday, September 25.

This year’s goal is to supply Tompkins County Food Distribution Network’s food pantries with about 3,000 pounds of food by the end of the week.
