Community and Caring Program Logo

Believe in Syracuse’s Community and Caring Initiative is being launched by our Community Service Committee.  As a committee, we work to support projects that address the vital needs of the Syracuse community. We seek to promote on-going adult/youth literacy development and efforts to address the critical every-day needs of Syracuse residents.

Mission: To create purposeful philanthropic opportunities for Syracuse’s community to support their community’s essential needs.

Goals: To hold a minimum of 4 donation drives per year. Each quarter we assist a local beneficiary in attaining goods to support their efforts to promote an increased quality of life for Syracuse’s inhabitants.
