Under the umbrella of “Collaborate & Eradicate: Navigating long-haul poverty and the complexities of systemic inequality,” the event will feature presentations and conversations from some of the County’s leading experts on the topic. Featured presenters include Clare Murray, Community Center of Northern Westchester; Limarie Cabrera, Westchester Children’s Association; Jessica Reinmann, 914Cares; Kathy Halas, Child Care Council of Westchester; Cynthia Knox, Caring for the Hungry & Homeless of Peekskill and Seth Diamond, Westchester Jewish Community Services.
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.
