While the ever changing environment created by the effects of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still evolving , we will maintain our regular services with an emphasis on ensuring that people in need continue to receive food and basic necessities.

We appreciate your interest in our work and your support. We hope you will consider a donation to help us support our partners and schools as they prepare for what may come with this situation.

We have been asked to help supply basic hygiene necessities to a local school as they prepare care packs to send home with students in the event of closure. Many of these students rely on the school for hygiene closet items throughout the year.

In addition, this pandemic may effect our local food pantries. We are asking your support to help provide food for families.

As many of us have been able to prepare by stocking up with food and hygiene items in advance of any quarantine, the most socio and economically vulnerable among us do not have that luxury. Your donations will go to purchase items that will be distributed directly to the schools or food bank.

Please note that 100% of your monetary donation will remain in our Dutchess and Orange County communities and will be supporting our most socio-economically vulnerable population.

Thank you for your support of our community during this ever evolving situation.

You can call United Way’s 2-1-1 confidential free helpline 24/7 with non-emergency questions or concerns about COVID-19. This service is free with translators available.
