Community Food Pantry of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown – The Community Food Pantry began in 2009 and operates out of Christ Episcopal Church in Tarrytown. It utilizes an all-volunteer staff to provide food, including fresh meat and produce, and household supplies to more than 250 children and their families on a monthly basis. Kids’ Club is proud to have given financial support to this vital community resource annually since then.
Open Door Family Medical Center – Kids’ Club has annually supported the clients of Open Door Family Medical Center Health in Sleepy Hollow by donating holiday gift cards and providing publicity for their December toy drive.
RSHM LIFE Center – Kids’ Club has supported the RSHM LIFE Center each winter with funds that allow its clients to purchase winter boots, coats and other clothing. We also have provided funding to enable the LIFE Center to make social work services available to families who need them.
Tarrytown Union Free School District – In 2021, Kids’ Club awarded a grant to TUFSD for two programs designed to address the mental health needs of students in the school district. The first, Youth Mental Health First Aid, was offered to 140 TUFSD staff members, including teachers, athletic coaches, administrators, clerical staff and more. The course was led by trainers from Westchester Jewish Community Services, and included both on-line instruction and an in-person workshop. In addition, 200 Sleepy Hollow High School sophomores will participate in Teen Mental Health First Aid, a peer-to peer training program specifically designed for this age group. This evidence-based program teaches young people how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders among their friends. It also empowers them with the skills needed to have supportive conversations with their friends and get a responsible and trusted adult to take over as necessary.
TaSH Food Market – Kids’ Club has awarded a grant to TaSH Food Market for its reinstated TaSH Tokens program. These tokens allow low income families to use redeemable tokens, provided upon proof of eligibility, to “purchase” fresh, local and healthy food at this outdoor market, which operates from Patriot’s Park in Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow.
