WATERTOWN, NY – The United Way of Northern New York is pleased to announce its upcoming move from its current office space at 120 Washington St, Suite 201, to The Marcy Building at 167 Polk St., Suite 300. This relocation marks a significant step in the organization’s ongoing commitment to enhancing community partnerships and fostering a stronger network of local nonprofits.
The decision to move arose when United Way’s leaseholder, Jake Johnson of Jake Johnson Properties, approached the organization with a request to vacate its current space to accommodate the business expansion of another tenant. The United Way agreed to the request, recognizing the importance of supporting local businesses and facilitating community growth.
As the United Way sought its new home, the choice was clear. The Marcy Building, owned and operated by Neighbors of Watertown, stood out as an ideal location, strategically positioning the United Way closer to numerous local nonprofits. This move will enable the United Way to better align with its mission to “Live United” by immersing itself in the heart of where exceptional nonprofit work unfolds each day.
Jake Johnson expressed his gratitude for the United Way’s understanding and collaboration during this transition. “We are truly grateful for how gracious the United Way has been throughout this process.
Their commitment to the community is unwavering, and the invaluable work they do greatly impacts the lives of individuals across Northern New York,” he said.
Dawn Cole, CEO of the United Way of Northern New York, is just as enthusiastic about the organization’s move and its dedication to facilitating both business and community welfare.
“We are delighted to embrace this new chapter in our journey. The relocation allows us to contribute to the advancement of local businesses while bringing our base of operations closer to a vibrant network of nonprofit organizations. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to deepen our connections and collaborate more closely with mission-focused agencies,” she said.
The United Way of Northern New York will commence operations at its new location in The Marcy Building, Suite 300, on Thursday, June 1. The organization extends its sincere appreciation to the local community for their ongoing support and understanding as the move takes place and looks forward to continuing its vital work in creating positive, lasting change.
