offering essential services

  • At the start of COVID, we had to change our choice pantry model to maintain social distancing and safety guidelines to be able to continue to provide enhanced food support.In order to meet the needs of food insecure families in our community we continue to distribute pre-bagged food at the back door of our Food Pantry. 
     
  • For our local seniors, those with underlying health issues, or those who lack transportation, our dedicated volunteers are providing home delivery of food and essential supplies.
     
  • ​To help families meet their clothing needs we are providing gently used clothing free of charge from our clothing boutique on site.
     
  • To assist individuals in managing their unique needs we are providing personalized support and access to additional resources.
     
  • We are communicating with other agencies to coordinate resources and ensure that the growing needs of those who have been impacted by this public health crisis are being met.
     
  • We are asking all volunteers, staff and families visiting the Center to wear masks. 

If you or someone you know needs support please visit us during our regular hours: 
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Fridays 10AM - 4PM, Thursdays 12PM - 6PM, and Saturdays
10AM - 1PM or call us at 914-232-6572, ext 110.
