School Supply Drive

Thank you to all who participated in the United Way/Berkshire Bank School Supply Drive! Many students will now go back to school with the tools they need to succeed.

We sincerely appreciate your support.  To receive supplies call your child's school and request school supply assistance.

Community Event

The United Way of Rome & Western Oneida County is having a “Community Event”.

On Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 5:00-7:00 PM at M.V.C.C. Rome Campus at 1101 Floyd Ave, followed by entertainment from the "Voice's" Ryan Quinn at 7:00 pm in the auditorium.

We will have food and beverages, door prizes, raffles and more.  Admission to the event is free and a limited number of tickets for Ryan's concert are available.  Please call us at 315.336.5660 for more information. 


Back to School Drive thru August 11

Please help us assist our Rome and Western Oneida County students in need by bringing in school supplies: pencils, pens, paper, folders, notebooks, backpacks, lunch bags etc.  You can drop them off at any Rome Berkshire Bank or our United Way Office at 143 West Dominick Street, Rome NY.   Believe it or not, some children will not have the tools they need to head back to school. With your help we can make their first day of school a happy one!  We are collaborating with our neighboring United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica area.  All supplies donated in Rome will stay in Rome.
