This is the time of year when people want to help the less fortunate. The Greenburgh Town Hall lobby is a great place to stop at if you would like to donate food, toys, essential items to the less fortunate.
We are working with three great organizations—the Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry, Greenburgh4PR Puerto Rico Relief Donations and Toys for Tots ---bins have been placed at Town Hall and we will be accepting donations.
We’re also helping to spread the word about a clothing drive sponsored by Christ Temple.
Hope you will consider helping the less fortunate. Our community cares.
