(ROCKLAND COUNTY/July 8, 2022) –Orange and Rockland Utilities has donated $5,000 to Catholic Charities Community Services of Rockland (CCCSR) for its food bank program. O&R supports numerous nonprofit organizations across its service territory in New York and New Jersey by offering cash grants, employee volunteers and more. “We’re committed to supporting activities and enhancing the vitality of the communities we serve,” says O & R spokesperson Linda Feger.
“With inflation taking an increasingly bigger bite out of peoples’ paychecks, we are seeing an uptick in the numbers of households we serve who rely on us to continue to feed their families,” says Dan Eudene, Executive Director of CCCSR. “Every dollar donated provides four meals to a needy family, so we are grateful to O&R for their ongoing generosity which helps immensely in our mission of helping our neighbors.”
The CCCSR Food Pantry is located adjacent to its offices at 78 Hudson Avenue in Haverstraw, New York. No one is ever turned away from receiving food for any reason; to register, call (845) 942-5791 during office hours. In addition to food, program participants learn about the benefits of using fresh ingredients from the bounty harvested from the “Garden of Love.”
