Tioga Opportunities, Inc.’s annual year-end fundraising campaign, Spirit of Hope, will kick off on November 15th, 2021, in an effort to further the organization’s mission to strengthen communities while empowering individuals and families to achieve independence and enrich their quality of life.
In a Spirit of Hope, Tioga Opportunities, Inc. is asking for the support of the surrounding community with a tax-deductible donation in order to continue to respond to the ever-growing and changing needs that many people are facing in Tioga County. Donations to the campaign will play a vital role to ensure the level of service and response to those in need during the ongoing pandemic. The campaign will continue through December 31, 2021.
“Everyone deserves the opportunity to aspire to their hopes and dreams, but 37% of families in Tioga County struggle to meet their basic needs. TOI empowers families to move forward towards a brighter future.” said Maureen Abbott, Executive Director. “The Spirit of Hope Annual Appeal will allow Tioga Opportunities, Inc. to deliver a range of services including delivery of a hot nutritious meal to an isolated older adult, reliable transportation to a critical medical appointment, accessible healthcare and health education, respite for an exhausted caretaker, safe and dignified housing, and nutrition and breastfeeding support for young families.”
In 2020, Tioga Opportunities, Inc. served over 3,000 customers and reinvested $3.2 million dollars in Tioga and neighboring counties through vendors and employees.
