White Plains, NY (December 2018) The Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS®, recently presented a check for $2,500 to The Children’s Village in Dobbs Ferry.
Founded in 1851, The Children’s Village works in partnership with families to help children develop the skills and positive attitude needed to succeed as healthy, contributing adults. Each year, The Children’s Village serves more than 10,000 of New York’s most at-risk children and their families. Programs include short-term residential programs, shelters, street outreach, foster and adoptive homes, a community center in Harlem, programs for youth involved with the juvenile justice system, and a host of family support services.
“We are honored to be the recipient of this generous donation from the Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation,” said Jeremy Kohomban, President and CEO of the Children’s Village. “Their commitment to our community is truly remarkable.”
The Children’s Village is one of the many local Hudson Valley charities benefitting from the REALTOR® Foundation, which has raised more than $30,000 from its “Runway for Hope” Fashion Show at New Rochelle’s Glen Island Harbour Club, and four “Pub Nights” this year held throughout the Hudson Valley.
Established in 2004 and relaunched in 2013, the Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley. As concerned members of the communities we work in, the Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation participates in qualified community-based charities who serve the housing, hunger, health, happiness, and humane needs of citizens everywhere.
