Non-profit (914) Cares, formerly Chappaqua Cares, held its grand opening at its new, location at 901 Broadway in North White Plains on September 20, 2018.
The event, expanding the Organization’s ability to help those in need all over the County, had County Executive George Latimore cut the official grand opening ribbon. Also, in attendance were State Assemblyman David Buchwald, a representative from Congresswoman Nita Lowey’s office, White Plains Mayor Tom Roach, Mount Kisco Mayor Gina Picinich and New Castle Town Supervisor Robert Greenstein.
(914) Cares facilitates efficient and impactful interactions between members of the community and local charities, helping to broaden awareness of neighbors in the community that struggle with unmet needs. The organization assists other Westchester-based non-profit agencies that focus on basic human needs, food, clothing, shelter, medical care and education as well as fostering actionable generosity tothe communities’ youth.
(914) Cares recently adopted the Kids’ Kloset organization. The new space will permit necessary space for more clothing donations and more volunteers. Kids’ Kloset, founded by Executive Director, Stephanie Roth, is a volunteer-driven program that provides Westchester County children and families in need with donated clothing and related items free of charge. Since Kids’ Kloset was opened in 2011, it has provided approximately 16,000 local children with clothing, diapers and other items.
(914) Cares was founded by two Chappaqua residents, Jessica Reinmann and Dawn Greenberg, with the goal of raising awareness about local non-profits doing extraordinary work helping residents. It has evolved to also include events for families enabling parents to teach children about the importance of volunteerism. Moving forward they would like to support non-profits throughout the county and create a larger community of supporters which will in turn help to strengthen Westchester communities.
