Want To Help Then Help Ulster County’s Project Resilience
After Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan spoke today on Facebook I thought it was important to share the current information for Project Resilience. Executive Ryan shared some of the numbers on today's talk. This program has helped a lot of Ulster County residences. To keep it going strong it also need Ulster County residents to help.
If you aren't familiar with Project Resilience it is an initiative that was launched on March 17th by Ulster County. It is a community fund and local food distribution effort. It is serving Ulster County residences impacted by COVID 19. In the beginning the county secured funding and the project has continued to receive donations. While it is benefiting residence in need it is also helping small business. Ulster County partnered with area organizations and businesses along with the United Way to make it all happen.
So now that you know what it is I want you to do one of two things. I want you to use it if you need it or if you don't then donate what you can to keep it going for your neighbor. This is the perfect way to help in a time when we all want to help but don't know how.
Numbers from today's press conference:
3,033 individuals / households have requested assistance through Project Resilience
60,716 Meals have been delivered
16 Local teams established to distribute meals
160 Restaurants have signed up
