Local Volunteer Opportunities

Meal delivery to those on the front lines of this pandemic as well as senior citizens and those who are medically vulnerable.  The United Way of Westchester Putnam is doing an incredible job in helping to coordinate this. Please fill out the volunteer form by clicking the link and we will put you on the list to deliver meals to these families.  https://forms.gle/GXvztbbUCKUmQ34Q8

Delivery will be curbside to door with minimal or no contact.  This is a local endeavor to help local families in Putnam County!  

Feel free to share the link with others you think may be able to help out.  Also, Please do NOT deliver to anyone if you feel sick yourself, have a fever or cold or symptoms within the past few weeks.  Our goal is to provide support to these vulnerable populations.
