Binghamton, NY – July 29, 2021— Mirabito Cares is pleased to announce a contribution to The Upstate Foundation in the amount of $68,349 to help support the mission of Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse, NY.  This contribution is the result of the hard work and generosity of the Mirabito Convenience Stores Team and our customers throughout the month of June.

“We are very grateful to our employees and customers for making this campaign such a huge success,” said Joe Mirabito, CEO.  “We partner with The Upstate Foundation because quality healthcare for children in our communities is important and Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital provides that care to families in need.”

During the month of June, Mirabito provided customers with the opportunity to donate to Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital by “rounding up” their purchase at participating Mirabito Convenience Stores.

“We were absolutely thrilled with the success of this new partnership with Mirabito,” said Danielle LaTour, Director of Retail Development for The Upstate Foundation.  “These funds will make an impact, helping to supplement quality patient care with the amenities that set GCH apart as the designated children’s hospital for Central New York patients & families. We are so thankful for the support & excitement shown around this campaign by the Mirabito employees & customers.”

The Vision of Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital is to be the leading children’s hospital in Upstate New York by:

  • Providing an exceptional patient experience while promoting a culture of respect, compassion, and trust.
  • Partnering with children and families on quality and safety to improve health outcomes and prevent illness.
