With COVID-19 cases again on the rise, the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan (CFOS) has renewed its commitment to supporting area nonprofits addressing the critical needs of the most vulnerable populations in the two counties. Since its inception in March, the Orange and Sullivan COVID-19 Response Fund has distributed grants totaling $512,076 to 95 area nonprofits which have collectively served more than 600,000 people hard hit by the pandemic’s devastating health and financial impacts.
The fund distributes grants of up to $5 thousand 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/.
Meals on Wheels of Greater Newburgh provides safe delivery of meals to homebound seniors in need with grant support from the Orange & Sullivan COVID-19 Response Fund.
