Five months since the establishment of the Orange and Sullivan COVID-19 Response Fund by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan (CFOS), funding remains available for nonprofits aiding those impacted by the pandemic.
Since its inception, the fund has distributed 117 grants totaling $484,576 to address immediate and longer-term needs of residents in Orange and Sullivan counties hardest hit by COVID-19. The Orange and Sullivan COVID-19 Response Fund distributes grants of up to $5,000 each to established nonprofit organizations that provide front-line services to the counties’ most vulnerable populations – food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, protective personal equipment for healthcare workers, online access to education for students, diapers and formula for babies, and telehealth for the elderly and those with special needs.
Nonprofit organizations providing response services to Orange and Sullivan residents during this pandemic are encouraged to apply for grants and donations at any level are currently being accepted. For more information, visit www.cfosny.org/covid-19-response-fund/.
The Goshen Ecumenical Food Pantry distributes food at a bi-weekly outdoor food drive-thru with grant support from the Orange & Sullivan COVID-19 Response Fund.
