United Way hosts Day of Shar­ing on Dec. 2

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

Ev­ery three months, the United Way of the Dutchess-Or­ange Re­gion opens its doors to area non­prof­its as part of its Day of Shar­ing Pro­gram. The next ses­sion will be Fri­day, Dec. 2 at the Pough­keep­sie of­fice, 75 Mar­ket St.

Each Day of Shar­ing aims to help lo­cal non­prof­its meet their clients’ ba­sic needs through do­na­tions of new goods, in­clud­ing cloth­ing, bed­ding, kitchen and house­hold items. These do­na­tions are pro­vided by busi­nesses, in­clud­ing Calvin Klein, Bed Bath & Beyond, Izod, and Van Heusen. Last year, al­most $100,000 worth of do­nated goods was dis­trib­uted through the Day of Shar­ing.

The event is open to non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions, schools, and churches in Dutchess or Or­ange coun­ties. Doors open at 10 a.m. and close at noon. For more in­for­ma­tion, call Kim­berly Kochem at (845) 471-1900, ext. 3122, or email kkochem@uw dor.org.
