Mission: PANTRY - COLLECTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF RESOURCES TO THOSE IN NEED
Programs: Pantry: the organization receives food and clothing from various donors for distribution from the food pantry to rockland county residents who are living in need. Food is distributed five days a week, fifty-two weeks a year to an average of 1,263 low-income families each month. Food packages include fresh fruits and vegetable, meat and protein, dairy, bread and shelf stable items. Weekend food packages are also distributed to at-risk children who participate in free and subsidized school lunch programs so that they do not go hungry on the weekends.
project joy: the organization receives gifts and clothing for distribution to low income children from donors who adopt families so that every child can experience the joy of the holiday season.
back to school with dignity: the organization receives school supplies and clothing from various donors for distribution to at-risk children so that they can start school in september with the supplies they are required to have. For these children, whose families are already having difficulty putting food on the table, the funds for school supplies generally does not exist. Back to school with dignity enables these children to start school on an equal footing with their peers, and sets the stage for success in the classroom.
People of People Inc. does a phenomenal job with very limited resources to feed the hungry in Rockland County, make sure their children start school in September with a full back pack, and ensure for those children a Holiday gift in December. Although faced with an ever increasing number of clients and shrinking financial resources, P2P has been able to serve more and more families thanks to an intelligent management team and a score of volunteers eager to take a stand against hunger and to help the less privileged in their community.
