Wed, Nov 3rd 2021 04:00 pm

The Allegany-Cattaraugus-Chautauqua Fund for Women (ACC FFW) announces today the launch of its year-end fundraising campaign, including a holiday plant sale. Funds raised during this period will support the ACC FFW’s grant making activities in 2022 to benefit women seeking financial assistance for long-term financial self-sufficiency.

Beginning November 1st through November 12th, ACC FFW will be selling holiday plants (poinsettia, cyclamen, and Christmas cactus), with all proceeds to benefit the Fund for Women. Holiday plants may be ordered online or through the mail.  Visit https://www.accffw.org/shop to order online or download a mail-in order form.

All plants come in 6” covered pots, and will be available for local pick-up in Alfred, NY, on December 2nd, plus additional local pick-up areas in Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties to be determined. All who purchase will receive an email with their designated local pick-up location. Supporters can also purchase plants to donate to local care facilities (chosen by the ACC FFW). 

Donations can also be made directly to the ACC FFW via https://www.accffw.org/donate-now.  Donations to this Fund are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
