    Westchester Non-Profit 914Cares Hosts its Inaugural Fundraising Event
    Inaugural annual fundraising event held at Westchester Country Club Beach Club in Rye. In attendance were CEO Jessica Reinmann, Gala Chairs Jess & Mark Anfang and Jillian & Michael Pohly, Assemblyman Christopher Burdick, and 230+ of the organization’s donors, volunteers, and community partners.

    The Gala celebrated 914Cares’ success in caring for neighbors in need, particularly throughout the course of the pandemic. “Since March of 2020, we have created three new programs to combat the rise of poverty in our community,” Reinmann shared in her presentation. In addition to its existing roster of programs that distribute clothing, books, and personal care products, 914Cares established a Diaper Bank (distributing close to 1 million diapers), Period Project (distributing 100,000+ tampons and pads), and most recently, a Hygiene Bank (distributing 3,300 hygiene products since its inception in May). “None of these successes would have been accomplished without the collaboration of our community partners,” Reinmann added, acknowledging the 80+ organizations served by 914Cares.
