“We are so grateful for the generosity of the great folks at PathFinder Bank,” said Sabine Ingerson, ARISE Regional Director. “They care about their neighbors and they show it in ways that make a tremendous difference. ARISE is deeply appreciative of their support.” Scott Pecoy remarked, “PathFinder Bank made a generous contribution. Plus, both Lorna and Ron, along with other employees, gave of their time to work on a ramp installation.”
The ARISE Ramp Program receives no government funding and relies solely on support from individual and corporate donations, with volunteer help from community partners. This gift from Pathfinder Bank will have a huge impact on ARISE’s ability to address the list of people waiting for ramps.
