“We value the diverse perspectives and insights of community members and appreciate the time people spent helping us target our next awards,” says Harry Levine, CFOC Board Chair. “We are data driven, and the survey results will be essential to the Board’s decision making.” The next award round will be announced April 1.
The Community Foundation of Otsego County survey designed the survey to help determine the most effective ways to invest its grantmaking in 2021. The survey results are being tabulated and analyzed, and will be presented to the CFOC Board. Survey highlights also will be posted on the CFOC website and social media.
Saturday’s Bread to Receive Donation
Joanne Lentner of Oneonta was selected at random from the 295 survey respondents. She was asked to choose an Otsego County nonprofit organization to receive a donation from CFOC. Joanne chose Saturday’s Bread. “During these times made more difficult by the pandemic, I would like the $100 to go to families in most need of food and basic necessities,” she said.
Saturday’s Bread is a meal program provided without cost for anyone who would like to share it. Because of COVID19, Saturday’s Bread now provides a cold entrée, salad, and fruit plus produce and dessert.
Meals can be picked up on Saturdays between 11 am and 1 pm at the First United Methodist Church, 66 Chestnut Street in Oneonta. Saturday’s Bread also delivers meals upon request to people who live in the Greater Oneonta Area. For more information, go to www.saturdaysbread.org.
