Rondout's Humanitarian Day of Service Saturday April 9, 2022

9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Throughout our COVID journey, there have been many things that have impacted our lives and which have created hardships for agencies and organizations that provide resources to those in need within our communities. In addition, news of the Humanitarian Crisis broadcast daily has brought another area of intense need to our attention. Many individuals and families are looking for ways to support those causes that impact our local area as well as the global community.  This Saturday we have organized a variety of activities that allow families to come together to help in a variety of ways. We have opted to include some organizations that we have worked with before such as the Veteran’s Hospital, Orphans of the Storm, and our “green mission” of bringing the joy of nature into our community through our Sunflower Project.  Heavy on many minds and hearts are the humanitarian need of those impacted by the situation in Ukraine.


On April 9th, we are kicking off a weeklong effort with a Day of Humanitarian Service for our Families. There will be a series of activities set up that you can participate in that day. There are several ways that you can get involved which are highlighted below. You can stop by for 15 minutes or stay for the entire time. You can simply drop off targeted donations or stay and work on some hands on projects. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The collections will continue through 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 14th. Blanket making materials can also be taken home to be finished and returned by April 14th.


We hope to see some of you this Saturday as we make a difference at many levels. Please contact Ms. Davis or Dr. Wojcik if you have any questions.
