The Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS®, recently presented a check for $3,000 to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, based in Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y. The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley is dedicated to alleviating hunger while preventing the waste of wholesome food. It is a branch of the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and a member of Feeding America, the national food bank network.
“We are grateful to everyone at The Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation for their commitment to the health and well-being of families in our region,” says Paul Stermer, director of the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. “Partnerships like this are essential to addressing food insecurity here at home.”
Working in partnership with the food industry, the Food Bank collects large donations of unmarketable but still edible food, and distributes it to charitable agencies feeding hungry people in a six-county region. Last year, the Food Bank provided more than 16 million pounds of food to 400 member agencies in Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, Rockland, Sullivan and Putnam counties. To find out more about supporting or volunteering for the Food Bank, please call (845) 534-5344 or visit www.foodbankofhudsonvalley.org.
Since 2014, the Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley. As concerned members of the communities it works in, the Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation participates in qualified community-based charities who serve the housing, hunger, health, happiness and humane needs of citizens everywhere.
