When one of Central New York’s long-time school teachers passed away last year, her estate named the Community Foundation the recipient of nearly $300,000 to serve our community’s greatest needs.

The Waldmans are fundholders at the Community Foundation and experienced family business owners.

“Giving Back” has always been the culture at Hueber-Breuer, so it was a natural response to give during the COVID-19 pandemic call to action.
