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:

 

(914) Cares

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.

 

SHORE

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:

Rabbi GordonTucker, Rabbi Ari Isenberg, Karl Bertrand, Amy Bitterman, Vitina Biondo, Amy Bitterman, Judith Grand,

Rita Kashner, Irene Kohn, Barbara Meixler, & David Oestreich
