A tour through the 914Cares facility feels a bit like landing on a cloud where a group of earth angels are busy creating little miracles daily within a dizzying number of rooms with clearly marked shelves. Sooo many shelves. Sooo many helping hands. Santa’s elves have nothin’ on this crew!
BDO International, a financial advisory firm, reports that during the pandemic, 35% of U.S. nonprofits showed an increase in demand for their services, while 75% had a decrease in funding.

On Thursday, September 29, 914Cares received a donation of 20,000 diapers from Stop & Shop in conjunction with National Diaper Bank Awareness Week. News 12 Westchester stopped by our offices for a tour of our facilities, and to help us in our mission to educate the public about the reality of diaper need across Westchester County.
I feel fortunate to call Westchester County my home. Many of our neighbors and communities are focused on giving back and improving the places where we live and work. You can get involved with numerous organizations through volunteering and fundraising and donating money, food, clothing, and more. Here are some of the Westchester County Mom team’s favorite local nonprofit organizations.
