Who We Are...What We Do

ESSENTIALS OF LIVING
We provide Northern Westchester residents from 38 communities with monthly supplemental food from our choice-style pantry. Last year, we took the edge off hunger for more than 2,000 families, who came to us for help and made more than 8,000 visits to our food pantry; 37% of those we serve are children. Our very generous local community donates gently-used clothing, shoes, accessories, and linens to our boutique, where families in need select from these items at no charge. Each year we also provide special seasonal items: gently used prom dresses and tuxedos, brand new school supplies, special holiday foods, and new warm pajamas for children. All are directly contributed or financed by concerned donors during our targeted drives.
