The Morrell Family Foundation
Our Mission: To support the Education and Well-being of children and their families in our community.
STCF & SFI are committed to supporting the efforts of the Morrell Family Foundation (MFF).
The MFF celebrated 20 years with the close of our fiscal year in June 2022. During this time, MFF has contributed over $425,000 to local organizations in the community.
We are grateful to the employees, vendors, and customers of STCF and SFI who support this effort each year.
Families in the community find it difficult to provide the required school supplies for their children. For 9 years, 2013-2021, we purchased over 360 backpacks filed with school supplies for grades Pre-K through 2nd grade at J. Sloat Fassett School. In 2022, we extended the program to the 3 other elementary schools in the Elmira district, and while the district provided some of the supplies needed, we focused our efforts on the additional needs of the school and it’s staff. We bought supplies such as: Clorox wipes, tissues, hand sanitizer/wipes, hand soap, Ziploc bags, white board markers, and classroom snacks.
For 18 years, the Family Fund provided gift bags of warm clothing and Christmas gifts to families in our community. In 2021, we shifted our focus donating to organizations meeting these objectives—such as Artic League, Glove House, Tanglewood, Catholic Charities and others.
The Tinner’s Open has raised $34,554 in 8 years, a major fundraiser for the foundation.
