WHITE PLAINS—The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation started off 2022 with two February events—a volunteer opportunity with the Community Center of Northern Westchester in Katonah, and a Pub Night at Tapped Craft Beer & Restaurant in Middletown.
A group of 10 Realtor volunteers recently spent their morning stocking shelves at the Community Center’s Food Pantry and sorting clothes for its Clothing Boutique. Founded in 1992, the Community Center provides meals, clothing, education and job training for individuals and families in need throughout northern Westchester County.
In addition, the center offers health outreach programs, breast cancer awareness workshops, free eye exams and eyeglasses through Lenscrafters OneSight Foundation, school and summer camp scholarships, citizenship exam preparation and support in navigating community resources. Currently, it serves nearly 3,000 families in 38 local communities.
The foundation’s first Pub Night at the Middletown venue garnered more than $2,000 in donations from more than 70 attendees. Pub Nights have been a stable of the foundation for the past few years, with local restaurants throughout the Hudson Valley providing complimentary appetizers and a cash bar. The $25 entrance fee and half of the 50-50 raffle goes directly to the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, which supports charities and non-profits throughout the region.
