HUDSON VALLEY – In the spirit of holiday giving and in recognition of its clients in and around Westchester County, Tompkins Financial Advisors (TFA) has donated $2,000 to Lifting Up Westchester, a social services nonprofit that provides food, shelter and support to Westchester County’s men, women and children in need.
All donated funds from TFA will support Lifting Up Westchester’s work, which consists of housing and feeding services, youth programs, and elderly and disabled services through Grace’s Kitchen, Open Arms Men’s Shelter, Samaritan House Women’s Shelter, Brighter Futures Summer Day Camp, Neighbors Home Care Services, plus other vital programs.
“We serve over 4,500 people every year with shelter, emergency food supplies, housing,” said Anahaita N. Kotval, executive director of Lifting Up Westchester. “And donations like this are used to make sure everyone has a holiday meal; that everyone has a warm place to stay, so we really can’t do what we do without this kind of support and we’re just so happy to have an organization like Tompkins in our bank of friends.”
TFA also acknowledged its customers in southeastern Pennsylvania by donating $2,000 to the Greater Berks Food Bank of Reading, Pennsylvania, which provides food programs for the area’s men, women and children.
