(914) Cares focuses on helping our Westchester Neighbors who struggle to meet basic human needs: Food, Clothing, Shelter, Education and Medical Care, with the ultimate goal of eradicating poverty throughout the County. To do this, (914) Cares partners with other local non-profits to support placement of volunteers and coordination of donation drives. Its key programs include: Kids’ Kloset, Baby Bank, Empty Bowls Westchester and Donation Drives.
Kids Kloset provides under-served children donated clothing and related items. Eligible children receive Bags of Love with clothing packed into properly sized and well-coordinated outfits free of rips, stains and missing buttons.
Baby Bank provides basic necessities and essentials for babies, 0-2. The mission is to help local families in need keep their babies clean, happy and healthy.
Empty Bowls raises both money and awareness in the fight to end food insecurity with the ultimate goal of eradicating hunger throughout Westchester County.
Donation Drives helps individuals and groups coordinate and manage collection items for those in need. The goal is to have new or gently used items quickly and efficiently get into the hands of those who can most use them.
(914) Cares is proud to offer “one-stop shopping” for those members of any community who want to help those in need. To volunteer your time, donate funds or goods or otherwise find a way to incorporate philanthropy within your family, visit 914cares.org.
