It feels as if we have, collectively, hit ‘pause’ on normal life. One group of activities that is, thankfully, on pause during this pandemic is eviction and utility shut-off for people behind on their bills. Our clients, all of whom are at or below poverty level, often have difficulty staying stably housed and current on their power and water bills.
What's not on pause? Hunger and food scarcity. In fact, food pantries are seeing record high demand as the economy continues to melt down. Phone calls to our Westchester office from people seeking additional food have noticeably increased.
Our clients need you.
Donations from caring neighbors like you keep our emergency relief funds going. Our food closets, which give out hundreds of food bags each year, are entirely supported by private donations. Please consider making a gift at this time to ensure HVCS has enough funding to assist vulnerable, hungry clients.
