sisterhood's fall fundraising drive for feeding westchester



Respond to Food Insecurity in Our Westchester Community

Across America people are waiting for food, ... Job losses have been concentrated among low wage workers. The number of Americans living in poverty has grown by eight million since May, according to recent research" (The New York Times, 10/18/20, SR  p.9). Here in Westchester the level of food insecurity is staggering, with at least 60,000 hungry children. 

 Sisterhood is holding a fall fundraising food drive for Feeding Westchester starting now through mid- November and Thanksgiving. Feeding Westchester provides 95% of the  urgently needed food directly to individuals and families and through local partners, such as food pantries, schools and senior centers. Every dollar donated provides four meals for Westchester children, families and individuals struggling with hunger. For more information on Feeding Westchester, visit their website:

You can help today! Either donate through the TINW Sisterhood by simply clicking here (we will forward to Feeding Westchester) or mail a check directly to Feeding Westchester at 200 Clearbrook Road, Elmsford, NY 10523. Make checks payable to Feeding Westchester.

Thank you - together we can make a difference!
