There are many ways you can help United Helpers...
Annual Appeal & Memorial Appeals
We are grateful for your financial support in response to our Annual Appeal and/or Memorial Appeal. Our Annual Appeal, sent each year in November, is a perfect time to honor the year-long commitment that United Helpers extends to our residents, resident family members and community.
Honoring the memory of a family member or friend is a timeless traditional. The Memorial Appeal offers a perfect opportunity to pay tribute to a loved one.
We encourage our friends to remember United Helpers by making provisions in their will or living trust. A bequest made to United Helpers helps the Society to continue our mission to care for those in need and ensures that your legacy of giving will be recognized for years to come.
Supporting Capital Projects
Throughout the years, the Society of the United Helpers has helped to provide financial support to several very ambitious building projects—United Helpers Nursing Home, our Intermediate Care Facilities and most recently Partridge Knoll.
Currently, United Helpers is working to merge its Cedars and United Helpers nursing homes in Ogdensburg. Construction is also planned for our Canton Nursing Home, currently located on West Main Street in Canton. This project will include the relocation of the nursing home as well as a new building design.
Your membership to any of our giving clubs is genuinely appreciated. Give throughout the year, or simply chose to make payments monthly by using your credit card. Either way, know that your contributions are used to benefit those we serve.

Providing for our Future
By supporting the Society of the United Helpers Endowment Fund, you will help to ensure the important services that are offered today will be here tomorrow. With the rising costs of providing care to our residents and the shrinking funding from our state, local and federal government, it has become increasingly important for United Helpers to plan for its financial future.
