GLENS FALLS, NEW YORK — On Thursday, October 19th, 2023, Tri-County United Way commemorates a century of unwavering service across the communities of Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga Counties. The 100-year anniversary gala taking place at The Queensbury Hotel pays tribute to the rich heritage of Tri-County United Way, acknowledging its transformative influence of communities’ current endeavors, and setting its sights on a future where every individual enjoys opportunities and resources essential for all.

“We have been responding to the most pressing needs of our community now for a century,” said Kristin Chlopecki, Executive Director of Tri-County United Way. “While the needs over the years have changed, our mission has remained the same: to improve the lives of the residents of Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga Counties and positively impact the community.
