HELP THE HOMELESS AND HUNGRY DURING THE HOLIDAYS
Release Date: December 22, 2008

 
 
 
If you are feeling charitable and want to help the less fortunate - the following area organizations are worthy of your support. I obtained this information from the Westchester Coalition for the Hungry and Homeless website: foodclothingshelter.org.
 
Greenburgh town employees had a holiday party this Friday at Town Hall. The employees raised $300 for the town's nutrition program which feeds the elderly. For more information about the Greenburgh nutrition program and how you can help out - please call 693 8997.
