Westchester Resilience: 

How Communities are Responding to COVID-19

#WestchesterResilience

As we together face the challenges of Covid-19, FCWC is collecting ideas for building community strength and resilience.   Please share what's going on in your community as people seek to connect and support each other through this time.   E-mail  a brief description of your community's action and a photo we can share (if you have one) to fcwc@fcwc.org.  Please  use the subject line: "community action", and include a contact name, e-mail/phone --in case we have questions before sharing.

 

We will post your community's news on a special page on our website, as well as on FCWC's Facebook.   

Here's our first inspiring post:  

Teens and other volunteers in Larchmont and Mamaroneck are working with County Harvest to ensure that people in need do not go hungry during this difficult time.  County Harvest is in need of support and volunteers! Check it out at:  https://www.countyharvest.org/.  To volunteer, e-mail: volunteer@countyharvest.org

 

We look forward to hearing from you about the good things going on in your community!

 

Thank you all for your efforts to keep your communities---and Westchester---safe, healthy and connected!
