United Helpers Turns 125!

United Helpers Turns 125!

Nearly 40 employees from across the United Helpers organization gathered for a team photo on the steps of City Hall in Ogdensburg on Thursday, May 4. While we were unable to capture an image of the flag in our group picture, a commemorative 125th Anniversary Flag was also flying in front of City Hall that day. May 4 was declared United Helpers Day in the city, and a proclamation signed by Mayor Jeffery M. Skelly was presented to members of the organization’s leadership at the City Council meeting the following Monday.

United Helpers, founded in 1898 to provide a home for area children who were in need, is 125 this year! May 4 marks the day when the first United Helpers matron, Alzina Milligan, brought the first child from Potsdam to the new United Helpers Home in Ogdensburg.
