This organization finds empty seats on both private and corporate planes for qualified cancer patients who need a flight to their treatment and provide it to them at no cost.
The generosity of volunteers has helped save the lives of many patients over the years. Volunteers have the opportunity to work with patients and their families, corporate flight departments, flight schedulers, doctors, and other parties to ensure that every patient gets the care and attention they deserve.
Volunteers work from the organization offices at Westchester County Airport. Duties include registering patients, screening eligibility, entering flight schedules, and scheduling flights.
Lifting up Westchester helps to restore hope to Westchester County’s men, women, and children in need. Grace’s Kitchen, a major part of the organization, is the largest soup kitchen in White Plains and serves meals each weekday from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Volunteer assistance is needed each weekday from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. Donations of money and food are also always welcomed. For more information and to access the volunteer form, click here.
The mission of Grace’s Kitchen is to provide a free, nutritionally balanced meal to anyone who needs it. The kitchen serves between 50 and 140 people each day, including hot meals on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, and other major holidays.
