HELP THE LESS FORTUNATE DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Release Date: November 22, 2006

During the holiday season I frequently receive calls asking how people can help the hungry and homeless. These are some suggestions:

  • UnionBaptistChurch, Manhattan Ave, Greenburgh (948-6439) has a food pantry for the hungry at their church. They welcome donations.
  • WestchesterCoalition for the Hungry & Homeless – 48 Mamaroneck Ave, Suite 35-37, White Plains, NY10601. Phone: 682-2737. The coalition has a list of county-wide organizations that could use your help. The organizations they recommend meet the needs of families.
  • The Sharing community,1Hudson Street, onkers serve a thanksgiving Day meal on November 23rd at noon. Volunteers are needed. Call 963-2626.
  • YWCA of Yonkers(shelter and food pantry), 87 S Broadway, Yonkers– will distribute holiday food for Thanksgiving. Volunteers needed  963-0640 X 102
  • El Centro Hispano (St Bernard’s Church) 346 South LexingtonAve, White Plains, NY 10606 distribute holiday foods to clients. Donations of Spanish foods, rice and any non perishable items are needed. Call 289 0500.

   The above is just a small sampling of organizations that provide assistance to the hungry and homeless. If you know of other organizations that need help, please advise.

Last year over 5.5 million meals were served in “affluent” WestchesterCountyto the hungry.

  On another matter – a few weeks ago I reported that a Dobbs Ferry family faced eviction from a Greenburgh owned apartment that the town acquired due to foreclosure. The building is substandard and is unsafe. Good news – the family found an apartment in Greenburgh and will be moving into their new home on December 15th!  We raised $1241 to help the family pay their one month security. Thank you for your help!  This family will have a happy and stress free holiday season.
