The Delaware and Otsego County United Way kicked off its fall fundraising on Sept. 24.

The first step was to help replenish the local food pantries, which local executive director Terry Capuano said has been a success.

"The goal is $316,000 for Delaware and Otsego County communities," she said. "We conducted a two county-wide food drive, which we are now in the process of turning around and redonating to the community. We started our campaign off with this event."

The United Way is committed to the local community and is proud to say that all of the donations raised here, stays here.
