Friends Helping Friends of Cayuga County, Inc, a local 501(c)3 charitable non-profit, would like to thank the many private citizens and the following businesses for their support in 2017. With their help, FHF was able to deliver numerous food boxes to low-income hungry families, 6 free cloth diaper starter kits to new Mamas and Papas, 126 springtime baskets for children, 146 backpacks filled with school supplies, and toys for 173 area children during the holidays.
It has been a joy to FHF directors to see the happiness and relief on the faces of our clients when we’re able to offer this help, and very often the clients that ask for help one year become the most generous givers the following year, when their financial situations have improved.
The FHF motto is, “Together We Make a Difference”, and the following businesses have made a significant difference in the lives of local struggling families in 2017. A
