Dutchess County is a community that truly cares and we have come together to rapidly respond to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak.
Whether you need help getting food, medications, or household essentials or you want to offer help and assistance through monetary donations, collecting or donating goods, volunteering, or more:
We can connect you!
The Dutchess Responds fund has been established at Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley to help community partners provide critical needs such as food, medications and household essentials to individuals experiencing hardships or quarantine restrictions as a result of the coronavirus/COVID-19 emergency.
We have established a one-stop connection between food resources in our community and those with a critical need for food and other necessities. The Dutchess Responds Food Connection is accessible through this form or residents can call the County's Coronavirus Information Line (845-486-3555) and select Option 5.
Currently, the Dutchess County Legislature has offered assistance to residents in their districts, particularly grocery shopping assistance for seniors. Interested individuals can contact the Legislature through its Facebook page or email CountyLegislature@DutchessNY.gov.
