Financial Donations
Checks or cash donations are always welcome! They are used to help pay for public events, utilities, insurance, inspections, maintenance, newsletter printing & postage, and so forth. Checks should be made out to:
Varna Community Association, Inc. and mailed to: Varna Community Association, Inc., P.O. Box 4771, Ithaca NY 14852-4771. Because the VCA has 501c3 status with the Internal Revenue Service, donations are tax deductible on federal income tax returns. If you have questions, contact the VCA treasurer.

Refundable Bottles and Cans
Refundable bottles and cans are collected on an on-going basis. Donations can be left at any time in the bin by the front door of the Varna Community Center (943 Dryden Rd. NY Rte. 366 Ithaca NY). A VCA volunteer sorts donated bottles and cans and takes them to a redemption center. This is an easy way to support the VCA -- those nickel and dime refunds really add up over time!

Printer and Toner Cartridges
Used printer and toner cartridges are collected on an on-going basis. A VCA volunteer returns them to a collection center for a refund. Please place your donation in a plastic bag and leave it by the front door of the Varna Community Center (943 Dryden Rd. NY Rte. 366 Ithaca NY).
