“Every year COR’s winter holiday drive has been a tremendous success. We have provided dozens of boxes and bags of non-perishable food, toiletries, and clothing to two local non-profits helping so many families in need. We’re excited to continue the drive this year in partnership with United Way of Central New York to help those in need. We’d like to thank the public for their generosity, and our local partners for helping to make the holidays a little brighter for members of our community,” said Merissa Lynch, Marketing Manager for COR Development.

More and more CNY families are struggling to make ends meet and living paycheck to paycheck.  While they’re happy to see their children grow, it’s often a struggle to keep up. The gift of warmth with a new winter coat, hat or gloves will mean so much to hardworking families in this community.” said Nancy Kern Eaton, president of United Way of Central New York.
