TIC HUNGRY & HOMELESS FUND – Winter Update 2018
Look at what we’ve done as a community…
We responded generously to the Yom Kippur Appeal
and can take pride in having raised approximately $16,500.00
to support local organizations and feeding, housing and supporting county residents.
What follows is a list and brief description of organizations
we continue to support from the Yom Kippur Appeal:
For the first time we are donating to (914) Cares to support stocking the food pantry.
Their mission is to support local Westchester based non – profits
that focus on basic human needs: food, clothing, shelter, medical care & education.
The Bridge Fund of Westchester
The Bridge Fund is Westchester's largest privately funded eviction prevention program.
This enables it to serve people who fall through the cracks of narrowly restricted government programs.
Ecumenical Emergency Food Pantry
The Pantry distributes nonperishable foods to hundreds of
needy families and individuals in our community.
Hope Community Services
Hope runs the largest emergency food pantry and soup kitchen
in the region as well as a housing stabilization program.
Hunger Action Network
The network provides for anti-hunger programs in NY and provides
research and education about hunger and homelessness.
Kid’s Kloset (Project of (914) Cares)
Kid’s Kloset distributes new and gently-used children’s clothing, shoes and baby essentials
to local families in need. We are donating to provide needed under garments for teens
and to buy new shelves for their brand new space.
This is Westchester’s umbrella organization for religious communities to alleviate homelessness in our area
Westchester Jewish Community Services
We earmarked our gift for home delivery of kosher meals to the elderly
The Hungry & Homeless Fund is co-chaired by Beth Rosen and Sue Thau.
The fund is distributed with the help of an advisory committee.
We acknowledge and thank them for their time and thoughtful consideration:
