Our Generous Community Gives Back Through the Student in Need Initiative
In 2016, this fund helped make Thanksgiving a little more bountiful for local families.

Thanks and giving…these two words sum up what we feel and believe about you, our generous community, for giving the gift of a Thanksgiving meal to 36 local families.

With your help, the Red Hook Education Foundation’s Student in Need Fund  purchased Hannaford gift cards for 36 families in the Red Hook School District to supplement food backpacks that do not go home with students during holiday periods. Everyone deserves this simple act of sharing the bounty of our community and we are deeply grateful to each of you for helping to make this Thanksgiving a tribute to thanks and giving.

The Student in Need Fund supports programs throughout the year that align with RHEF’s mission of equity for all students, regardless of their ability to pay. Your donation has provided, among other items, clothing, eye glasses, field trip funds, exam fees, and school supplies for Red Hook students. These are just a few of the many ways your contribution makes a difference for Red Hook kids.

As the holiday season approaches, please join RHEF as we work together to meet the needs of students and families at home and in school by making a gift to the Student in Need Fund.
