Community Cares to Match $10,000 for Delivered Meals To Seniors, Medically Vulnerable, And First Responders In Putnam County
Community Cares will match up to $10,000 to pay for the family-style meals to those in Putnam County most affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). It is working the United Way of Westchester and Putnam and the Putnam County Business Council to provide restaurant-prepared meals to Putnam County residents who are senior citizens, disabled, or who are immune-compromised as well as first responders and healthcare workers. The efforts will support the local economy by using Putnam County food establishments, such as restaurants, delis and grocery stores.
The idea for Community Cares was sparked when I was diagnosed with breast cancer when my children were ages 3, 5 and 6. During my surgery, chemo and radiation, I was supported by my friends and family and quickly learned how difficult it is caring for children when you are in the fight of your life. I also learned that not everyone has a generous support system and that I could help. I wanted to help my neighbors and pay forward the help and support I received while going through my cancer treatments.
Through the years we have helped countless families fighting sickness and disease while caring for their school aged children and our support comes from our wonderful community! I have learned that everyone wants to help but doesn’t always know what to do. We offer the help and support families need.
That is why we are Community Cares!
