VETERANS & COMMUNITY HOUSING COALITION, INC.

The Veterans & Community Housing Coalition, Inc assists and supports veterans in our 7 surrounding counties by providing temporary and permanent housing as well as a food pantry. These housing options include The Guardian House, which is the only supportive housing program for homeless female veterans in New York State.

In honor of Military Appreciation Month, we asked Michelle Viola-Straight, Director of Community Relations, one question: “How can we help our veterans?”

 The answer: Help make their new house a home.

The Fenimore team worked to provide 10 ‘Welcome Home to a Hero’ baskets for veterans that are transitioning into permanent housing. Each basket was filled with pots and pans, baking sheets, oven mitts, comforter sets, sheets, pillows, cleaning supplies, shower curtains, towels and more.  Our hope was to make ‘Home Sweet Home’ a little sweeter by allowing these veterans to spend more time enjoying this milestone and less time worrying about purchasing items they need.

The Fenimore team dropped off the baskets and was able to visit and tour the Guardian House and see the incredible impact that the Veterans & Community Housing Coalition has made across our community. As this month draws to a close, we want to extend a thank you to the Veterans & Community Housing Coalition for their continued work and a sincere thank you to all veterans for their service.

Regional Food Bank

Food For Thought

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York distributed more than 51 million pounds of food and grocery products in 2021 — the equivalent of 42 million meals — across 23 counties! The need is great … and growing.

The Regional Food Bank is responding to the surge in demand for their services due to rising grocery and fuel costs, while also handling supply chain issues and rising operational costs. Their mission “is to alleviate hunger and prevent food waste.”

In mid-March, our associates helped Regional Food Bank partner agencies load their food orders. It was a very enjoyable and meaningful morning!
