Dear Rochester: Fisher Joins United Way Campaign Efforts

April 12, 2019

For more than 100 years, the Rochester community has come together to help neighbors in need through the United Way annual campaign. In 2019, the fundraising drive takes on the theme, Dear Rochester, and once again, St. John Fisher College will join the effort, helping to raise funds to “take care of our dear Rochester.” Fisher’s campaign will run from Monday, April 15 through Friday, April 26.
