Our motto is “Think Globally, Act Locally,” because we know the most effective change is from the grassroots – it comes from you.

How Communities are Responding to COVID-19
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 email@example.com. 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: firstname.lastname@example.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!
We've always worked hard to provide leadership that educates about environmental issues, advocates sound decision making, and unifies groups and individuals to protect and preserve Westchester's environment and address climate change.
Make your mark today with a 100% tax-deductible donation to FCWC, so that we can continue to protect and preserve Westchester's environment in 2018.
Happening in Westchester!
Most of the projects that are done in Westchester that relate to remediation of flooding and stormwater are funded through grants received by the Soil and Water District.
Current projects include an artificial reef project on LIS to protect the shoreline, and work along the Bronx River Parkway, as well as numerous other sites.
