The holidays are a time to gather together, appreciate each other, and think about ways we can help others. Everyone is deserving of a bit of cheer over the holidays, and that’s why Doral Arrowwood Resort has found a variety of ways to contribute to the community and spread the love.
Help Feed Westchester
Each year over 25 chefs volunteer to create culinary treats in “An Evening of Good Taste,” including Doral Arrowwood’s own Chef Michael Schmutzer. Put on by the Westchester Food Bank each year, the event proceeds go directly to help those who struggle with getting a meal each day. In Westchester alone, 58,000 children go hungry, and although this event has passed, you can still contribute your time, donations, and food to the organization.
Be Part of a Support System
Friends of Karen is an organization that seeks to help critically-ill children and their families.They follow the mantra: “No family should have to go it alone.” This year, Doral Arrowood team members helped wrap gifts for the organization. With simple acts of volunteering, you can provide a vital support system to help these families feel like they have people behind them. They also hold fundraising events that you can attend, like The Walk/Run For Friends of Karen at the LI Marathon.
In the aftermath of the hurricanes, many people’s lives have been uprooted, and some don’t know how to begin rebuilding. To help, Doral Arrowwood has put on fundraising events that have raised over $1,000 to help hurricane victims. Various organizations collect the donations to help these families start over, including The Red Cross and Americares. See all the ways you can help here.
There are plenty of ways to help change a life this holiday season, whether it be in your local Westchester area or nationwide. The folks at Doral Arrowwood Resort understand that a simple act of kindness can go a long way, whether it means volunteering time for a day, attending a fundraising event, or making a donation.
