It is now more important than ever to offer support for our community and our neighbors. If you are
able to, we also encourage you to support our local businesses and restaurants all of whom are being
impacted by this global pandemic. These businesses have always supported our community and its
various charitable organizations. It is important that we support them now.
We encourage our community to come together with compassion and support for each other. Reach out
to each other through safe means. Offer to assist those that need it. We cannot allow fear to stop us
from helping those in need.
Be healthy and be safe. Be sure to take care of your neighbors in need. The Catskill Community Center is
here to support our community. We are all in this together.
