The United Way of Buffalo & Erie County has opened registration for its successful "Spring It On" campaign for interested nonprofit organizations.

Participating organizations will have a web page set up specific to their agency or program that will allow potential donors to learn more and donate directly to the organization through the "Spring It On" website. They will be encouraged to promote the event and their cause through social media and other communications channels.

Any interested 501(c)(3) organization providing services in the counties of Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua, Allegany or Orleans is eligible to participate in "Spring It On."
