Each year, the United Way of Buffalo and Erie Country visits Tapecon to talk about their organization and its needs. To help support their initiatives, we allow our employees to give back to the organization through direct donation or payroll deduction. Employees also have the option to designate their donation to a specific member agency if a cause is particularly important to them.
Tapecon has also participated in the United Way’s annual “Day of Caring” event many times over the past 15 years. The Day of Caring is Western New York’s largest community service event, mobilizing thousands of volunteers to complete hands-on community service projects in the region. In the past, Tapecon teams have worked on a variety of projects including painting walls, landscaping, gardening, and washing wheelchairs, just to name a few.
United Way’s mission is to bring people, organizations, and resources together to improve community well-being. Their core value include: Service, Integrity, Collaboration, Accountability, and Innovation. For more information about our local United Way chapter, please visit www.uwbec.org
