Giving Back for the Holidays
Want to do something special for a child in need this holiday season? “Adopt” and shop for the kids in one Orlando, Florida family living in profound poverty. Email us for details on a family. Other ideas? Stuff a Holiday Stocking, or Make a Holiday Dinner Basket for a struggling family. We’ll link you with a local food pantry where you can drop it off. Or help your child “Give it up!” for a child with less by giving up one wanted toy this season.
Hastings on Hudson Food Pantry Wish List
The Hastings food pantry (where FtoF is located) is running low on basic food items, and with 60 families relying on it for staples every month, we’re enlisting our Hastings neighbors to JOIN OUR NEW AMAZON.COM FOOD PANTRY WISH LIST!
It’s super easy…. just click on the link and order an item or two to be shipped to the pantry! We’ll keep the wish list updated with the pantry’s most urgent needs every month. Thanks to Hastings resident Elizabeth Adinolfi for the great idea and for starting the list!
We’re hoping to use social media to circulate the list… and hopefully provide a permanent solution to the hunger problem here in HOH!
F-to-F Providing Clothing to Women in Need through Her Justice
Here at Family-to-Family we’re excited to be collaborating with Her Justice – a NYC organization that helps impoverished women obtain legal assistance. Most of the women are victims of domestic violence. Family-to-Family will provide high quality clothing for the women to wear to court — complete outfits we’ll put together from clothing donated to us by the Eileen Fisher Recycling program Green Eileen. Since March we have passed along over 13,000 items of gently used Eileen Fisher clothes to 12 nonprofit organizations that serve women and teens in need!
New “Gap” Pantry Helping Families Caught Between the Cracks
Together with Red Bird Mission in Beverly, KY we’re excited to announce the opening of the new “Gap” Pantry.

A sponsorship for one gap family is only $10 a month! Read more here.
