Join us on April 11th to support and celebrate Lifting Up Westchester’s 40th Anniversary and our important work in the community. Learn more about how our programs are helping so many. (Event Page to follow)
For 40 years, Lifting Up Westchester (LUW) has been on the frontlines of hunger and homelessness prevention.
Our ultimate goal is to lift Westchester’s most vulnerable residents from poverty and homelessness to a life of greater self-sufficiency . . . but we can’t do it without you!
Your support of our Oasis of Hope gala through a sponsorship, journal ad or silent auction donation will help ensure that 3,500 men, women and children in need will receive:
80,000 free meals so they won’t go to bed hungry
20,000 nights of shelter so they won’t have to sleep on the streets, or in your doorways
Housing placement and retention assistance so that they can move into – and maintain - apartments of their own
Employment through our free Home Health Aide training classes so successful trainees can provide a better life for their families
After-school tutoring so that homeless and at-risk children can be the first in their families to go to college and the last to live in poverty
And so much more . . .
We want YOU in our starting lineup!
Whenever you or your fundraising team make a donation to Lifting Up Westchester's March Matchness Challenge from March 17 to April 8, your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $5,000*
*Donations must be made through the March Matchness fundraising page from 3/17 - 4/8 in order to be matched.
