They supplied masks and sanitizer to agriculture workers, and along with their team of trained nutritionists, partnered with the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, Binghamton Food Rescue, and CHOW, to deliver and service thousands of meals within our community.

In addition, CCE’s Workforce Development team partnered with Broome-Tioga Workforce New York, to assist young people who were out of school due to the pandemic.

Many organizations including CCE have cancelled their fundraisers because of the pandemic, and the lack of funds has created hardships in our community.

#GivingTuesday will help Cornell Cooperative Extension with programs and services to assist our neighbors in need, and support our local farmers and suppliers.
