The Blue Ribbon Foundation of Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania (BCNEPA) is committed to supporting nonprofit agencies that respond to the needs of residents throughout the region.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors recently authorized its 2010/2011 contribution of nearly $122,000 to be shared by 14 United Ways located throughout BCNEPA’s 13-county service area. As part of that contribution, Lycoming County United Way (LCUW) received $13,036 targeted specifically to support health-related programs for Lycoming County residents.
“We are pleased to partner with Lycoming County United Way to help improve lives and change the community conditions that affect our region’s most vulnerable residents,” said Cynthia A. Yevich, executive director of The Blue Ribbon Foundation.
“The success of our campaign to provide needed financial assistance to the 44 vital human service programs operating under our umbrella is made possible by the support provided by area businesses and individual contributors. The Blue Ribbon Foundation has a long-standing record of support for our mission to help those facing difficult times right here in Lycoming County. We appreciate the confidence they have placed in us in helping us address health-related issues in our community,” said Scott N. Lowery, LCUW executive director.
