UPDATED 6/27/2020: WSFSSH - Call for Support
For the past 40 years, the West Side Federation for Senior & Supportive Housing, Inc (WSFSSH) has provided affordable housing and supportive services to older persons and persons with special needs living in 28 buildings across the Upper West Side, Harlem, the South Bronx, and Chelsea.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, WSFSSH residents have received a tremendous outpouring of support from people like YOU: supporters, friends and neighbors. Since April 2020, responses to our Call for Support have enabled WSFSSH to provide over 1800 Resident Care Packages to our residents that included essential personal care, household and activity supplies. All items were either in-kind donations or were purchased with monies donated to WSFSSH COVID-19 Relief. The provision of these Resident Care Packages has been critical to ensuring our residents' health and safety. THANK YOU to everyone who has come together with WSFSSH to serve our residents during this time.
We see this as a long-haul effort, and we want to continue to involve our community of supporters, friends and neighbors in support of our residents and programs. We have learned a lot from this process both in terms of resident/program need and how to manage a large-scale donation effort. Therefore we have transitioned the WSFSSH Call for Support into a more streamlined effort moving forward. There are 2 ways you continue to come together with and in support of WSFSSH.
TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS TO WSFSSH: Donations to "COVID-19 Relief" will help WSFSSH to continue to provide residents and programs with essential supplies and items.
