Kingston Gives Money To Two Groups For Their COVID-19 Response

Apr 10, 2020

In New York, the City of Kingston has contributed additional money to two organizations that provide emergency food assistance, counseling and more.

Kingston Mayor Steve Noble says the $30,000 is for Family of Woodstock and People’s Place to further support these organizations in providing emergency food assistance, food delivery arrangements, emergency counseling and more. Noble has provided additional support to the Emergency Food Hotline (888-316-0879) endeavors by devoting IT efforts to developing the software; renting tents for both the YMCA and People’s Place food distribution points; and renting a portable food cooling unit for the YMCA. Additionally, the city is contributing $12,000 to the YMCA for operating costs at the food distribution point.
