As we buy and prepare gifts for family and friends and co-workers and many others, we should try to remember to make year-end donations to local charities that support our community and/or serve those in our community who are less fortunate.
In addition to churches and houses of worship, below are some local charities and groups (with links if available) that could use support:
Army of Change for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease – Raises funds to find a cure for two debilitating diseases.
Foundation for Educating Children with Autism – Serves children with autism in our area.
Mount Kisco Public Library Foundation – Support programs at Mt. Kisco’s library.
American Legion, Moses Taylor Jr. Post 136 – Help them continue to serve Mount Kisco and the surrounding region.
Mount Kisco Volunteer Ambulance Corps – Serving those in need of medical attention.
Neighbors Link – Strengthening Mount Kisco by actively enhancing the healthy integration of recent immigrants.
North East Westchester Special Recreation – Providing socialization, recreation and leisure for chidren and adults with special needs.
Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry is the voluntary effort of twelve religious congregations who are dedicated to fighting hunger and have joined hands in offering free food throughout the year to those in need of food assistance
Emergency Shelter Partnership which houses the homeless in our community through the winter months.
Please feel free to add your own favorite local charity in the comment section and I will revise this post.
