MHV with gratitude for the outstanding work local organizations are doing around pandemic relief work, has pledged $30,000 groups throughout the Hudson Valley to bolster those efforts. 

Recognizing the invaluable work that area non-profits are doing in support of COVID-19 relief, MHV has partnered with six organizations dealing specifically with food insecurities to provide financial assistance for their efforts. Recipients include People’s Place in Ulster County, Project Resilience in Ulster County, the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley in Orange County, the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan County, Caring for the Hungry and Homeless of Peekskill, and Dutchess Responds.

Each organization received a $5,000 grant from MHV. According to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, one of the grant recipients, the money will allow their organization to provide 20,000 meals to those in need.

"Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union is honored to support these six organizations who are providing an incredible service to a growing number of people in our community dealing with food insecurity,” says Michael Mattone, VP of Community Impact at MHV. “With the increased demand in our counties for something that is so essential to our daily lives, we hope our contribution helps these charities carry out their mission, and brings brighter days to families who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic."
