Everyone recognizes this year is different due to the pandemic. However, that doesn’t mean that people can’t continue to help those in need. AllOne Charities and the All One Foundation, based in Wilkes-Barre, has established a campaign to raise funds for non-profit organizations throughout northeast Pennsylvania.
The Northern Tier Industry & Education Consortium (NTIEC) is one of about 30 organizations set to benefit from AllOne’s efforts. “We’re very fortunate that they put our name on the list of non-profits that people can donate to,” said NTIEC executive director Shealynn Shave (above).
Giving Tuesday is a global initiative traditionally conducted on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. AllOne Charities’ extended virtual version of Giving Tuesday from Thanksgiving Day through Wednesday, Dec. 2. will allow more time for people to participate.
If the NTIEC reaches their goal of $1,000 in donations, AllOne Charities will provide a $1,000 match. Additionally, Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation will chip in another $1,000 from the company’s Energy Education Fund.
“NTIEC works closely with those of us in the energy industry to align students with trades-based education, and we want to help them with their fundraising efforts,” said Cabot external affairs manager Bill desRosiers (above).

“We wish the best to you and yours during this unusual holiday and encourage you to remember those less fortunate by helping us achieve our charitable goals,” said Shave.
