Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan’s Make A Difference Fund Announces Orange County Grant Recipients for 2017

Chris Molinelli, Liz Schmidt and Kathleen Morgan of HONOR ehg, Inc. with CFOS Chairman, Josh Sommers and CFOS President & CEO, Elizabeth Rowley.

The Make a Difference Fund was established by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan to provide grants to local organizations that provide services and programs to children of low-income, disadvantaged or distressed families. In 2017, grants were awarded to programs focused in the area of food and nutrition. Each summer, the Distribution Committee, comprised of the Foundation’s Board Members and community volunteers, reviews a high volume of applications to determine which organizations will receive grants in Orange and Sullivan counties.

Phyllis Guardino and Claire Newquist of The Guild of St. Margaret Soup Kitchen, with CFOS Chairman, Josh Sommers and CFOS President & CEO, Elizabeth Rowley.

The Board of Directors was proud to announce the 2017 Orange County grant recipients at this year’s Annual Reception on November 15.  Representatives from each organization attended the event and joined the Foundation’s leadership for a grant presentation.  Grace Episcopal Church was awarded a grant of $1,500 to assist with funding for The Guild of St. Margaret Soup Kitchen, which is located in Middletown, provides hot meals two times a day, all year round.  HONOR ehg, Inc., which provides services to people who are battling chemical dependency, in need of temporary or transitional housing or require crisis intervention, received a grant of $1,000 to assist with funding for their Mobile Food Outreach Program.  This program offers meals to individuals who are living on the streets and are not in the HONOR shelter.
