SC Federation for the Homeless Receives Stewart’s Grant
SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY (March 5, 2015) – The Sullivan County Federation for the Homeless has received a $500.00 grant from Stewart’s "Holiday Match" program. Stewart’s has been collecting and matching donations in their shops from Thanksgiving to Christmas since 1986. Half of all monies collected and disbursed comes from their customers.
In keeping with the parameters of the grant, the Federation will use this money to supplement the bi-weekly food pantry which directly supports children and families in the Sullivan County community. Kathy Kreiter, Program Administrator at the Federation notes that this generous donation comes at a critical time. “Food insecurity is a very harsh reality for many folks living in Sullivan County. Once again Stewarts has stepped up to support our community, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.”
