YONKERS – Westchester County’s Office for Women has partnered with the Women’s Ministry of the Messiah Baptist Church of Yonkers to collect more than 500 pairs of socks for people in need. The socks were distributed to local police departments, domestic violence shelters and the Lower Hudson Valley Perinatal Network.
Socks are one of the most requested items for people facing housing insecurity. Other needed items include feminine hygiene products, formula, diapers and baby products.
The Office for Women also collected and distributed diapers, gift cards and groceries over the holiday season. Together with the County’s Department of Social Services, the Office for Women tries to meet the needs of all of Westchester’s residents
