Editorial Submitted to the Paper

It seems that non-profits have been in the news a lot recently.
Normally, and I say this with some experience as the director of a non-
profit, these organizations have to push and prod to get noticed by
political aspirants. But as the Binghamton mayoral race draws to a
conclusion, it seems that two of our mayoral candidates cannot seem to
say enough about how non-profits are an untapped revenue source for
municipalities. One candidate goes so far as to say that he will
shame non-profits into paying taxes or a fee to government for use of
government services. Not wanting to speak on behalf of all non-
profits, or even on behalf of my organization, I offer the following
as a response of a taxpayer and a citizen of Binghamton.
Many of the charities in the City of Binghamton perform mandated
services on contract with county and state governments. The reason
these municipalities contract with faith based charities and secular
not-for-profits is that these organizations can perform the same
services with better outcomes at a fraction of the cost of state run
programs. The question that this raises is should non-profits that are
performing these mandated programs on behalf of the government be
taxed for providing the tax saving programs that they are contracted
to perform? In short, should organizations funded by larger government
entities to perform necessary services that they would have to perform
pay for City resources on a local level? Isn't this a case of robbing
Peter (the state) to pay Paul (the City) and how does this really save
taxpayers money in the long term?
The examples of this are far too numerous to fit into a short
editorial. Catholic Charities and the Children's Home of the Wyoming
Conference save the county millions of dollars in organizing foster
care and housing at risk children. My organization works
cooperatively with the Sheriff's office in assisting prisoners leaving
the jail in developing a discharge plan and performing pastoral care
ministry at a fraction of what it would cost the county to perform a
similar state mandated program. This does not even begin to scratch
the surface of the services that Fairview Recovery Services, The YMCA
and The YWCA and the many other human resources and medical non-
profits perform in our community.
Nor do the candidates account for the non-profits that help bring us
art, books, music, plays, and opera. These non-profits add depth and
beauty to our community, but they also are economic generators. We
should not forget that Speedie Fest, the Tri-Cities Opera, The Arts
Council, First Night, WSKG, just to mention a few, raise additional
tax revenue for our local municipalities and income for businesses in
the area. Where would our community be without them?
While it is convenient and easy for candidates to propose that this
tax, let us just call it what it is, covers what it costs the city to
house non-profits, it is an entirely different proposition to say what
it would cost the city if non-profits did not exist or from where the
funds for the non-profits work comes. I think that instead of taxing
or shaming non-profits into paying a fee for city services, candidates
should instead see the many ways that non-profits save municipalities
money, help raise revenue, and influence the quality of life for all

IBM CHOW Donation on NewsChannel34


Last Update: 10/23 9:33 pm

IBM has just completed its 5th annual food collection drive.
Employees of Big Blue collected 6 tons of food which have been donated to to the CHOW pantry.
George Madl, with IBM loves the commitment his employees have made.

George Madl says, "we have some wonderful employees here that it doesn't take the leadership team here to do a sales job or do a marketing campaign. They just take off and do some wonderful things. The idea of giving is part of the IBM-ers DNA."

IBM also raised more than 300-thirty-one thousand dollars for other non-profit agencies too through its Employee Charitable Contribution Campaign.

Facebook Entry about the Reentry Program

Broome County Council of Churches Jail Ministry Program The Jail Ministry Program reentry project is a member of the Broome County Reentry Task Force. For more information on this initiative please visit the link below.


Read this today and want to offer it as a thought for today: "In organizations, real power and energy is generated through relationships. The patterns of relationships and the capacities to form them are more important than tasks, functions, roles, and positions." ~ Margaret Wheatly

If this is true, and I believe it is, the question is not whether you have the title commensurate with the role you're playing, rather it is found in the quality of the relationships you are able to develop with those closest to you. I believe Margaret Wheatly is onto something.

Though I would add that often we overfunction to compensate for those who take little responsibility for themselves or underfunction and heap responsibility onto a few. It's always better to treat relationships as sacred, but to do so somewhat circumspectly since some exist to use other's generostiy.

The advise then is in relationships to be as wise as serpants and innocent as doves....

Pipedream Article mentioning CHOW

Handbaked challah sold for humanitarian effort

Originally Published 2009-10-16
By Robert Bellon
The Sodexo bakery, a bedraggled brick building in the parking lot of Physical Facilities, is oft-forgotten (if known at all). But inside is a bright bustling kitchen, where a small but industrious group of students meet twice a week to contribute to a common mission: make challah and make a difference.
Lauren Rothschild and Alexandra Kassimir oversee the operations of Binghamton University’s chapter of Challah for Hunger, a national non-profit organization that raises money for charitable causes in communities throughout the country and across the globe.
Rothschild, a senior human development major, and Kassimir, a junior psychobiology major, were involved in the group when it was first organized in the spring of this year.
“We just started on campus last semester,” Rothschild said. In their first semester of operation, they raised $2,000. They donated half their earnings to Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW) and half to the American Jewish World Services Sudan Relief and Advocacy Fund.
Now, the group sells their handmade challah on Thursdays from 2 to 4 p.m. from their table outside of the food court in the New University Union. But when hungry shoppers look into the plastic bags full of hand-kneaded bread, the product they see is only the quiet culmination of the work of dozens of volunteers.
“Probably the hardest part of starting was finding a place to bake the challah,” Rothschild said. She, Kassimir and others worked last semester with the founders of the Binghamton chapter —who have since graduated — and representatives of the national Challah for Hunger to establish a brand new baking operation.
Ultimately, they found their home in their very own corner of the Sodexo bakery. Sodexo provides the group with a place to bake the bread and all the necessary equipment, including two ovens for their exclusive use.
“The ovens are only ours to use,” said Rothschild — and they need to be.
“Everything we do is strictly kosher,” said junior accounting major Matt Block, the chapter’s accounts manager. A mashgiach, a supervisor of a kosher establishment, certifies that the challah is kosher, and keeping the ovens for challah only is a way of making that process easier.
The process begins in the Sodexo bakery. The dough is mixed in a hefty industrial mixer that looks more like a giant drill press than a baking instrument, and the dough churns in an elephantine metal bowl.
When the mixing is done, the volunteers heave the bowl onto the table and reach into the bowl for the dough. They then weigh, portion and knead the dough before braiding it by hand into loaves.
The loaves are left to rise in a walk-in refrigerator overnight. The next day, it is baked in the morning, packaged, and promptly brought to the New University Union. That way, Block said, the bread is baked the day of its sale.
Last week, the group baked about 60 loaves, and all were sold. Some weeks the students make 100 loaves and sell out in an hour, according to Arielle Kahn, a sophomore psychology major and the group’s sales manager.
The group makes and sells plain and chocolate chip challah, and this week they introduced a new whole wheat variety. They are also exploring more unconventional styles of bread, including blueberry, sun-dried tomato and chai.

Rothschild is thankful to Sodexo for letting the group use their facilities and equipment. “They just donated to us,” she said. “We order all our supplies and ingredients from them.”
She also commends the volunteers.
“We have a great volunteer group,” Rothschild said. The volunteers are so willing to do work, and so many sign up for shifts that “sometimes we have to just turn them away.”
“We find that it’s kind of cathartic for a lot of people,” Rothschild said. Not only does this apply to the volunteers, but also the homeless, hungry and disaster-stricken people in Binghamton and around the world who receive their donations.

Congregation Blast on Homeless Initiative

October 14, 2009

Dear Friends,

I want to thank you for your interest in helping serve the homeless and start a program that will help assist people in moving from homelessness to finding permanent residence and employment. Currently, for lack of a better title, we are calling this program The Center for Self-Sufficiency that is to be administered by the Broome County Council of Churches.

The program will house individuals in partnering Churches throughout Broome County. During the summer we attended a meeting with VISIONS in Wilkes-Barre, PA, a similar program to the one we are proposing, and sent out information and letters on the program. We asked for you to take the program to your governing councils and mission committees to find out your level of interest in the project.

Many congregations requested additional information, and we put together fact sheets outlining the responsibilities of the congregations that house the mobile shelter and the responsibilities of the Broome County Council of Churches in hiring, securing insurance, and hiring the team that will implement and develop the program. If you are interested in receiving that information again, please contact us at the Council and we will send it to you.

Presently, I am in the process of securing funding from HUD through an Emergency Shelter Grant that is due on October 29. What I need from you are letters supporting the Center for Self Sufficiency that specifies how your congregation will support this initiative. If you will act as a host site, please indicate that. If you have money to give to the program, or if you gave money to the program as some have done, please indicate that. If you are willing to help serve meals or provide support services, please indicate that.
Whatever you are willing to do in support of the project needs to be documented and put into the packet of information that will be sent to the Planning Department for consideration. The date when the final proposal is due is October 29, so I will need your congregation’s letter of support no later that October 22.

I apologize for the short turnaround, but I was not aware of what needed to be included in the proposal until yesterday at the meeting in the City Council Chambers. Thank you for your support. I look forward to your replies.

Peace and towels,

Rev. Dr. Joseph Sellepack

ESG Funding and Block Grant

Joe Sellepack attended a meeting at the City Council Chamber Yesterday to find out how to apply for ESG Entitlement Funding from HUD and to apply for Block Grants to the City of Binghamton. The meetings were fairly fruitful and he has the information on how to apply for the funding. Some of the Block Grant funding that we may be able to apply for is summer community food programs that benefit residents of Binghamton like we did this past year at West Presbyterian. Additionally they may be used if we had a wheelchair ramp being built in Binghamton City Limits. The funds correspond to the calendar year.

ESG funding is for programs for homeless people in our community: including shelther, food, legal help, job counseling, etc. These funds are managed by the city for HUD and are available on Feb. 1 and run to Jan the following year.

Applications for both of these funding sources can be found at Go to the planning department, then look for a Blue Link on the Right hand side for an application for Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG) or Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Applications are due at 5:00 on October 29. They were very insistent on keeping that deadline.

Donations paid out to victims' families, survivors of Binghamton ACA shooting

October 2, 2009
Donations paid out to victims' families, survivors of Binghamton ACA shooting

By Nancy Dooling

Six months after the April 3 massacre at the American Civic Association, local charities began paying out donations from the remaining $150,000 raised to help families of victims and survivors.

The roughly 60 payments work out to an average of about $2,500 each, but under the weighted system used by the charities, those who lost more will get more, said Alan Hertel, executive director of United Way of Broome County.

A committee of charity officials and other agencies decided how best to parcel out the money, Hertel said.

Family members of victims and survivors were not consulted in the process, and a list of who received money -- and how much -- was not made public.

"We needed to remain as neutral as possible," Hertel said. "We have to treat every family as equally as possible."

A month ago, Hertel said approximately $270,000 had been collected; of that, $70,000 was spent in the days after April 3 on expenses not covered by other aid. Costs included emergency rent payments to victims who lost the family breadwinner and food for families of immigrants who traveled to Binghamton for funerals.

At that time, Hertel said about $200,000 remained to be distributed to survivors. However, he said additional bills came due since then and were paid.

Some families already have decided what to do with their share of the money.

David Marsland, who lost his wife, Hong Xiu Mao in the April 3 massacre, will likely donate what he receives to needier families victimized, he said.

The family of Roberta "Bobbie" King will either donate the money to a scholarship fund in their mother's name at Binghamton High School or give it to local fundraising efforts to build a memorial park in Binghamton.

"Either the scholarship or the park would be appropriate," said Dr. Jeffrey King, one of Bobbie King's 10 children.

Under the payout, the two children of Marie and Marc Bernard, who were orphaned April 3 when both parents were killed, will get more than the survivors who were trapped for hours in the building while police searched for a gunman, said Hertel, who declined to list the names and amounts people received, citing privacy concerns.

Not all of the $150,000 was distributed Friday, Hertel said.

Thirteen victims died at the hands of gunman Jiverly Wong, 41, a Vietnamese immigrant. Wong killed 11 adult English students, their teacher (King) and caseworker Maria Zobniw.

Four others were seriously wounded before Wong turned one of his handguns on himself.

People and organizations began writing checks and hosting fundraisers in the days and weeks after April 3. Catholic Charities of Broome County collected the lion's share, with donations totaling $200,000. The Broome County Council of Churches collected about $50,000. The Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier collected about $8,000. United Way collected less than $5,000, Hertel said.

Those charities joined together to decide how to distribute the money. Other agencies involved include Binghamton's Crime Victims Assistance Center, Broome County Department of Social Services, the ACA and the Broome County Bar Association.

Deciding how much money to give families and survivors was a challenge, Hertel said.

Officials looked at whether children were involved, at losses of family breadwinners, and examined the on-going medical or housing needs of survivors when making decisions about how much money each person would receive.

Several legal issues are involved with giving money to victims who returned to their homelands after April 3. Those issues are now being resolved by attorneys and federal agencies, Hertel said.

People entitled to a payout were contacted this week and had to provide identification before receiving any money, Hertel said.

Money that isn't claimed in the next 30 days will be donated to the ACA, Hertel said.
