One positive theme coming out of the coronavirus crisis is organizations making an extra effort to support and engage the community, and providing a model for the next generation. In this respect, the DRI Foundation has made a donation to the Hastings Youth Council in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY.
Composed of eight adult volunteers and two student representatives from each grade in Hastings High School, the Hastings Youth Council provides support and resources to the youth of the community and their families by maintaining outreach programs, school drug prevention and anti-bullying counseling for youth and family counseling, volunteer and job opportunities, as well as a safe haven for children of all ages.
During the pandemic, HYC has seen a marked rise in visitors to its food pantry, which is supported by donations, food drives, and partnerships with local organizations, and has increased those efforts with a dedicated donation section.
The DRI Foundation is proud to support such nonprofit organizations in communities impacted by disasters to provide crucial assistance. 100 percent of the money collected for the Global Pandemic Fund will go to small, local organizations that are an integral part of their communities.
