The Service Collaborative of WNY is 5 Years old this month!
In May 2011, Board and Executive Leadership of the agency decided that the name ‘The Service Collaborative of WNY’ gave a stronger identity to an operation that had been providing quality service and support to Western New York for two decades. Over the past five years, TSC has continued to impact that lives of individuals across our communities and has enrolled over 1,400 committed men and women into National Service.
Staff and Board of The Service Collaborative are proud of our accomplishments over these last 5 years and are excited about what the next 5 will look like. Take a minute to check out just a few of our accomplishments in 5 short years: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TSC!
This May, we are asking those who have served with TSC, been impacted by TSC, and those who are interested in providing opportunities to see more impact in the next 5 years, to donate $5, $55 or $555 in honor of our Birthday!
