Established nearly 40 years ago, the Croton Caring Committee’s members and volunteers work tirelessly in furtherance of its mission to enlist the resources of the Croton community to help the frail, elderly, homebound, handicapped, and families in need of temporary assistance, enabling them to maintain their independence and dignity.
Our programs support hundreds of Croton residents and, by way of example, include Senior Luncheons (which provide a venue for 60-90 seniors to socialize and engage with other community members); Medical Transportation (providing free, round-trip transportation to medical appointments within a 15-mile radius of Croton); and School Supplies (Croton-Harmon School District students in need of assistance are provided with vouchers to purchase much-needed school supplies at local Croton businesses).
Our work would not be possible without the generosity of so many community members who have supported us through their donations. As the holiday season approaches, we would again ask that you consider donating to the Croton Caring Committee. First, we would be grateful if you would consider donating food to our Holiday Food Basket Program which provides food to approximately 50 Croton families at Thanksgiving, Christmas/Chanukah and Easter/Passover. For our Thanksgiving baskets, you can donate your free frozen turkey by requesting that ShopRite hold it for the Croton Caring Committee. Non-perishables, such as instant/canned potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, canned vegetables, bread/biscuit mix, cake mix/icing and canned pie filling, can be dropped off on the front porch at 11 Eklof Court between November 1stand November 17th. A full list of the food needed is available at this link.
Second, our annual fundraising appeal will be mailed on November 1st. Please consider making a monetary donation. As always, all support will stay in Croton and be used to benefit Croton residents. For those of you who are not on our mailing list, please see a copy of our annual appeal and learn about ways to donate at this link.
We are grateful for your continued support. Please contact Carrie Sena at (914)-271-4979 or email@example.com any questions or to learn about ways to become a volunteer!
