This Week’s TMR: The Evolution of the United Way of CNY

Syracuse, N.Y. – Nancy Kern Eaton, president of the United Way of Central New York, will discuss the agency’s long history in the community and how it’s adapting to the changing times during a Zoom public forum from 8 to 9 a.m. Thursday hosted by Syracuse University’s Thursday Morning Roundtable.

Eaton, who succeeded Frank Lazarski as president in July 2017, has spent her entire career working for local not-for-profits, including Housing Visions Unlimited, Home HeadQuarters, Syracuse Weed and Seed Community Partnership, Syracuse Area Salvation Army, and Arise Child & Family Services. Before becoming president, Eaton had served as a volunteer with the United Way of Central New York since 1999, supporting resource development and community impact initiatives.

Now in its 55th year, Thursday Morning Roundtable features speakers who discuss current topics in Central New York and beyond. Following the forum, residents can use the chat function to ask questions and Emily Winiecki, community engagement coordinator for Syracuse University’s Office of Community Engagement, will moderate the Q&A session.
