United Way celebrates and recognizes organization’s accomplishments

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — For an entire century the United Way of Broome County has been serving the community.

Thursday night was their holiday party that celebrated the past 100 years and to step into the next 100.

United Way staff and community partners gathered at the Roberson Mansion.

A full dinner and prizes donated by community organizations recognized the organization’s accomplishments while celebrating the holidays.

More than one hundred people were in attendance to show appreciation for the past and excitement for the future.

Jacqueline Gerchman, Executive Director for the United Way of Broome County, spoke about the impact the organization has.

“The hope for the new year is that we can continue to do the work that we’ve been doing and that we continue to have the same impact on the community,” said Gerchman.

Officials say that through their efforts more than 57,000 lives in Broome County were impacted in the last year by the United Way.
