In response to recent regional flooding, Canandaigua National Bank and Trust (CNB) has announced plans to match the first $10,000 raised by the community for recovery efforts. The funds will be channeled through the Finger Lakes Area Community Endowment (FLACE), and a Canandaigua Area Flooding Assistance Recovery Fund subaccount has been created specifically for these efforts.
Donations can be made online or at local CNB branches, and will ultimately be distributed to United Way of Greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes, the Salvation Army, and the Partnership for Ontario County. Frank H. Hamlin III, President and CEO of CNB, underscored the initiative as a testament to community spirit and the institution’s commitment to assist those in need.
FLACE, established in 1994, is a charitable organization that stimulates charitable giving throughout the Finger Lakes region. Donors to the recovery fund will be eligible for a charitable deduction on their income tax. For those impacted by the floods and in need of assistance, they can visit the United Way office in Canandaigua starting July 17, for more information.
