- $2,200 to the Hamilton Food Cupboard, which worked with an area farm to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to more than 100 families.
- $1,800 to Utica’s Adult Learning Center, which used photography to tell the story of refugees settling in central New York.
- $1,000 to the Sherburne-Earlville School Community/School Connections for Literacy Success project, funding a traveling tutor and creating literacy bags with books, puppets, puzzles, crayons, clay, scissors, and paper for incoming kindergarten students.
