DID YOU KNOW? The First Presbyterian Church of Yorktown Food Pantry has a matching Grant that is critical to their ability to serve the hungry. This Grant will match, up to $10,000.00 each year, all of the monetary donations that individuals give! The gifts given and the matching funds cover about 50% of the Food Pantry Operating Budget each year.

DID YOU KNOW? So far in 2018 the Deacons Ministry has only received $5,000.00 in Individual contributions, putting our 2019 Operating Budget in jeopardy. At this rate we will lose out on $5,000.00 of the matching funds.

DID YOU KNOW? You have the power to change that! Please make a Food Pantry gift before the end of this year. Don’t wait until December 31st. Do it NOW. We have very nice cards that you can use to let someone know that for their Birthday, Thanksgiving or Christmas you have given a Gift to our Food Pantry in their honor or in celebration of a special event. Just stop by the office or the table in the Gathering Space.

DID YOU KNOW? We need your Gifts to continue the work that our Congregation have committed to!

DID YOU KNOW? Feeding Westchester honored FPCY with their Innovative Program Award at their annual Agency Conference in September. The award recognizes the way that FPCY has improved client services and streamlined our pantry operations with the use of client registration software developed by one of our members. FPCY is also recognized for our outreach to other Food Pantries in Westchester County, as well as the Feeding Westchester Mobile Pantry, enabling them to adopt the software free of charge.
