For the past eight years, the Haverstraw Neighborhood Fund has been able to provide children and families in need with backpacks, hot meals, activities, and children presents for the holiday season.  In addition to Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Haverstraw Neighborhood Fund has been able to support children with backpacks filled with the necessary school supplies for the school season.  We prepare children from grades kindergarten to high school. The Haverstraw Neighborhood Fund makes the Back-to-School Backpack Event a whole day family event where children can enjoy fun activities and a delicious lunch before distribution of backpacks. As co-chair of the Haverstraw Neighborhood Fund and trustee of Village of Haverstraw, I have had to privilege serve my community with fun events to support the children and families of Haverstraw. Last year, we were able to send over 1,000 children back to school ready for a successful year.

For 2018, our goal is to send 1,000 children back to school prepared with necessary supplies

As August approaches fast, we are kindly asking you to help us achieve our goal of sending over 1,000 children back to school ready and prepared. We are collecting donations for backpacks and school supplies. We are looking for school supplies such as pencils, pens, notebooks, index cards, crayons, color pencils, markers, binders, and more.

Get Involved and Donate

It takes lots of work and team effort to make each event successful. Our volunteers, sponsors, donors, committee members and community members make each event possible everytime. These events are possible because of the support from each and everyone one of you.

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

Monetary donations are always accepted to continue our events. The Haverstraw Neighborhood Fund has established a fund under The Rockland Community Foundation. If you would like to make a tax deductible monetary donation, please make your check payable to:
