WHITE PLAINS—The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, recently presented donations checks to three local charities—People to People in Nanuet and the Hi-Tor Animal Care Center in Pomona in Rockland County and the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh, Inc. in Orange County.
People to People, which operates Rockland’s largest food pantry, received a $4,000 donation, while Hi-Tor Animal Care Center received a check for $1,000.
The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation also recently presented a check for $5,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Reaching across religious, cultural, and racial boundaries, it seeks to rebuild a sense of community with the common goal of strong neighborhoods and dignity through homeownership.
“Habitat Newburgh is grateful for the continued support of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors,” said Cathy Collins, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh. “As a group that knows the value of homes, their gift helps our organization continue to partner with local families to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through homeownership.”
Habitat for Humanity is one of 17 local Hudson Valley charities benefitting from The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, which raised more than $30,000 at its September “Monte Carlo Night Gala” at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. Established in 2004 and re-launched in 2013, the foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley.
