The season of giving is upon us, and member organizations of C2 are organizing various drives to support families who could use some help over the holidays this year.
For Thanksgiving, the Junior League of Westchester-on-Hudson is looking for monetary donations to help them reach their goal of funding 28 food baskets to go to members of St. Teresa’s Church in Sleepy Hollow. The cost to fund a full Thanksgiving basket is $59; a half-basket costs $28. Please make donations via the Junior League’s e-store at http://www.jlwoh.org/estore.
The RSHM LIFE Center is also collecting $30 donations (cash or check) to support a holiday meal (chicken, rice, beans, apple pie, apple cider, and fruit) to be given to families at Thanksgiving. Please make out checks to “Giving Thanksgiving” and drop them off or mail them to RSHM Life Center at 32 Beekman Avenue, Sleepy Hollow, New York, 10591 by no later than Friday, November 16th.
Once Thanksgiving is over, our members are turning their attentions to toy and clothing drives. Please consider supporting one or more of these community initiatives:
1) The staff of Allan Block Insurance Agency is holding a holiday drive for children of military families who have a parent deployed. If you would like to donate a toy, please contact Margaret Black at firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-703-3156;
2) RSHM LIFE Center seeks toys and children’s clothing for their annual Holiday Boutique. Donations may be dropped off at the LIFE Center, 32-34 Beekman Ave., Sleepy Hollow between now and December 14th. They also welcome families/individuals who would like to ‘Adopt-a-Family’ and grant the gift wishes of a local family in need. Please contact Sr. Susan Gardella at email@example.com or 914-366-9710 for more information;
