The United Way Stone Soup Philanthropy Corps of Ithaca College is proud to announce that it completed its inaugural allocations cycle on November 15, 2009.
One recipient is Finger Lakes ReUse, who will use their grant to kick-start their Computer ReUse program and help provide the facilities for a showroom to sell recycled computers and make Ithaca more eco-friendly. The other recipient is Challenge Industries, who will use their grant to assist with the foundation of a healthy eating, whole foods program for local residents with physical and cognitive disabilities.
Founded in late 2007, Stone Soup is the first student United Way organization at Ithaca College, and throughout the 2008-2009 school year, the group raised nearly $3,000 by drawing on various funding sources. These included the Ithaca College faculty-staff United Way campaign, the annual family carnival and other campus opportunities.
