The Contemporary Club of Ho-Ho-Kus has established a GoFundMe to raise critical donations for the Community Emergency Relief Fund (CERF).
The funds raised through this effort will go to the brave front line medical personnel (including those living in our Ho-Ho-Kus community and those who work at our local hospital via the Valley Hospital Foundation) -- as well as Ho-Ho-Kus families in critical need of support. We have also partnered with The Chamber of Ho-Ho-Kus to provide some of this support via gift cards purchased from small businesses with storefronts in the Ho-Ho-Kus community.
NOTE ABOUT VALLEY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
We have been in contact with the Valley Hospital Foundation, and while food donations are appreciated, this allows us to make the donations in the form of gift cards to local Ho-Ho-Kus restaurants, or cash donations to directly support their purchase of needed medical protective gear/supplies, etc. They are trying to use this format with other towns/organizations as it greatly simplifies their utilization of these generous gifts due to scheduling and food preparation restrictions.
Brought to you by the Ho-Ho-Kus Chamber of Commerce & The Contemporary Club of Ho-Ho-Kus (a 501(c)3 charitable organization).
Signs will be delivered directly to your yard in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
All proceeds go directly back into our community including Minuteman Press & the Contemporary Club beneficiaries.
Since 2007, The Contemporary Club of Ho-Ho-Kus has used the CERF fund to confidentially support individuals and families who reside in our community and are experiencing financial or health challenges. Assistance has included paying essential bills such as medical, mortgage payments, and other vital items.
During this unprecedented time, we have expanded the fund to also provide local healthcare workers on the front line with support and gestures of goodwill. 15% of the total funds raised will be donated to the Valley Hospital Foundation, with the first $1,500 raised going directly to them to immediately support our front line there. The balance of the fundraising efforts will be disbursed into the community, including our first responders.
