Mosaic Center Stocks Up on Nonperishable Foods Thanks to Bronxville Junior League

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Stocking up at Sam's Club with funds donated by the Junior League of BronxvilleLast year we received a $2,000 grant from the Junior League of Bronxville to help feed hungry families in Lower Westchester. Luckily we had other donations to stock our Mount Vernon food closet until recently, but the time came when we needed more non-perishable foods. Our Education & Prevention Director, Barbara Bennet, took a trip to the nearby Sam’s Club and loaded up two dollies with basics for the Mosaic Center. Our sincere thanks go out to the Junior League of Bronxville for assisting us to feed food-insecure families in Mount Vernon!
