No Child Goes Hungry (NCGH) is pleased to provide a $1000 donation to the Community Unitarian Universalist Congregation (CUUC) in White Plains, New York. The funds will be used to support the Help Our People Eat (HOPE) cooking project in New Rochelle, the largest emergency Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen in the region.
With the assistance and support of a host of volunteers, HOPE opened the doors of its first Soup Kitchen in 1984. Although HOPE Community Services was founded to respond to hunger in the community, it quickly became apparent that food was not the only thing our clients were lacking. Clothing, language skills, emotional support, immigration services, and other daily necessities were also needed. HOPE Community Services expanded its services to meet the needs of its diverse client population.
Our team is thrilled and so appreciative of No Child Goes Hungry’s generosity,” said Amy Swiss, a representative from CUUC. “This donation will allow us to continue to provide meals for several months.”
“CUUC was one of the first grant beneficiaries of No Child Goes Hungry when I founded the organization over three years ago,” said NCGH Founder and Director Rev. Kären Rasmussen. “It is a pleasure to continue to partner with CUUC, especially in support of its HOPE program, which brings critical services to those in need in the Downstate New York area.”
