UTICA, N.Y. – The Rising Phoenix Holdings Corporation and The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties both matched $50,000 in donations to Halloween storm victims, making $150,000 available for residents affected by the floods.
Rising Phoenix announced in November it would match $50,000 in donations to The Community Foundation for flood assistance. Once the $100,000 was committed, The Community Foundation contributed an additional $50,000.
“A business stepped up, the community responded, and the success of this effort reminds us how our community responds to help those in need,” said Community Foundation President Alicia Dicks. “We’re pleased that donors, Rising Phoenix and The Community Foundation came together to make a difference.”
These funds are available to home and business owners in Herkimer and Oneida counties.
