Where to Donate Formula

Here at 914Cares, the heart of what we do is centered around giving every child a fair shot at good health and happiness. So needless to say, we’re distraught over the formula shortage that our nation is facing.
We’ve consulted our trusted community partners, and encourage anyone with formula *already in your home* to donate to drop it off at one of the below locations. Please do NOT go seeking out new formula to purchase for the purpose of donation, as this can disrupt an already troubled supply.
  • Westhab, 123 E Post Road, White Plains *Enfamil only! Ask for Angela or Jessica in Childcare*
  • Fred’s Pantry, 137 N. Division Street, Peekskill (Saturday mornings only)
  • Mt Vernon Neighborhood Health Center, 107 W 4th St, Mt Vernon
  • Community Center of Northern Westchester, 84 Bedford Road, Katonah
  • Mt Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry, 300 Main St, Mt Kisco
  • Port Chester Carver Center, 400 Westchester Ave, Port Chester
  • HOPE Community Services 50 Washington Ave, New Rochelle

914Cares Programs are designed to help reduce financial stress, meet practical needs, and foster respect. Their success allows our neighbors in need to move forward.

Designed to meet evolving needs

People who struggle with financial security are routinely forced to make impossible choices between paying rent, utilities, and medical bills vs. purchasing essential supplies like clothing, diapers, and period products. Lack of these resources creates barriers to employment, education, childcare access, and causes mental and physical distress.

The majority of the necessities of daily living we provide are not covered by any public benefit programs. We help fill the gap with programs that reduce financial stress, meet practical daily needs, and foster respect.

Our focus on pragmatic, tangible assistance is matched by our attentiveness to human dignity and respect for those we serve: all items we provide are of good quality, carefully selected with the recipient in mind.

We have designed our program model with care. Rather than reinventing the wheel by launching new or duplicative services, we focus on needs that are not currently being met. We do this by continuously connecting with our Community Partners to learn of the ever-changing needs of their communities.


Clothing+ provides each recipient with a Bag of Love containing a week’s worth of clothing and bonus items such as books, toys, hygiene products, and period products.

Teen Programing

Junior Advisory Board
Our Junior Advisory Board of high school students from across Westchester engages future leaders on poverty.

Spiral Giving

914Cares is excited to host a Spiral Giving club. Spiral Giving works with youth organizations and high schools to teach empathy and community-engagement to high school students. Program participants learn about the need in our community, research local nonprofit organizations, evaluate grant applications, and award crucial grant money to local charities.  This successful process helps develop leadership and fundraising skills and gives teens another way to make change in our community.
