The United Way of Broome County is continuing its mission of service to others while looking back on its iconic history in our area.

The United Way held its annual meeting recently where attendees recognized the 100th anniversary of the inception of the organization in Broome County.

Members checked out old signs and documents used to generate donations.

The meeting also covered the current state of the organization as Jacqueline Gerchman takes over as Executive Director.

She plans to keep up the organization’s good work.

“Where would the community be without the United Way?  We have so much more work to do and so many more exciting events taking place in the future.  100 years is a long time.  We want to think about that footprint that we want to leave.  Where will the United Way be 100 years from today?” said Gerchman.

Gerchman also helped introduce the Broome County United Way’s new website.

She says this year, the United Way will especially focus on low-income seniors.
