Ways to Help Now During Coronavirus

Make a Donation

At The Children’s Village, we remain on the frontlines, caring for children who cannot be home with family and providing food, shelter and care to many who live in our communities. Without the funds supporters like you contribute, we put our innovative programming for youth and families at risk. Please consider making a donation to directly support the added expenses we are seeing due to Cononavirus.

Donate Goods or Services

Like many of you, we are in need of supplies such as hand sanitizer, soaps, cleaning supplies, and many other household items. If you have items to donate, please email us and we will respond as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience as our staff is greatly reduced and responding on a first come first served basis.

Shop on Our Wish Lists

Click here to shop on our Amazon Wish List for items that our youth and families need right now, including technology and school supplies so that they can continue their learning remotely. If you are shopping for yourself, you can always enter The Children’s Village as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile.

Support Local Businesses by Providing Dinner for a Residence

Our residential campus in Dobbs Ferry has over 30 cottages, with plenty of staff and youth doing their best during the Coronavirus. We have smaller residences throughout the 5 boroughs and Westchester County who need support as well. Please consider ordering a take-out or delivery meal from a local restaurant for one of our cottages or residences – you will put a smile on the faces of our youth and staff while supporting local eateries. Email adellipaoli@childrensvillage.org if interested.
