Van Fundraiser. Let’s mobilize!

We have raised $5925.00! Thank you everyone!

We’re excited about our  fundraising campaign to purchase a much-needed van for Heart of the Hamptons.

We’ve been working with Storms Ford in Southampton where general manager Stuart Schoener has found a used Ford Transit Connect that would be ideal for the job.  Our goal is to raise $25,000 to purchase the van and pay for insurance.

We hope you will help us! Your donation will provide our volunteers and staff with a van to deliver 40 meals to the homebound every Wednesday and make emergency food and medical deliveries to the sick and non-ambulatory throughout our community. We will also use the van to keep our Food Pantry shelves stocked. We currently make weekly trips to pick up donated food at local farm stands and bakeries and for our weekly meat donation. During the holiday season we’re busy picking up donated turkeys, clothing and gifts.

A van will greatly improve our ability to provide these and other services to our clients and eliminate the need for staff and volunteers to use their own cars. Having our own van would also simplify the insurance issues involved in people using their own vehicles.
