Madison County Gives was launched by the Konosioni Senior Honor Society Class of 2015 in December of 2014. In its first year, Madison County Gives raised over $14,500 for the Madison County-based organizations below:
BRiDGES, Madison County Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse, Inc.
BRiDGES provides residents with prevention, education and intervention services related to alcoholism and other addictions, and offers life skill training programs to prevent use among fourth to eighth grade students in Madison County schools.
Donations to this Cazenovia-based food pantry from Madison County Gives supported the purchase of milk and eggs for low income families in Madison County.
Chenango Nursery School
The Madison County Gives campaign helped Hamilton-based Chenango Nursery School provide scholarships for low-income families who cannot otherwise afford to send their children to day care or afterschool care.
The Emmaus House provides temporary shelter for hundreds of homeless women and children. Funding from Madison County Gives was used to replace worn out bedding for the 18 beds in their shelter.
The Kelberman Center used funding from Madison County Gives to help ensure that children with autism have a safe and successful experience at Kelberman’s summer camp programs.
Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association
Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association shelters, heals and enriches the lives of homeless animals in Madison County.
