Toy Drive

Dec 20
Category | In the Community

Homestead Funding employees worked to collect donations for a toy drive to benefit several families in need this holiday season through the Haven of Hope Farm & Residence. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to give over 80 gifts to seven children in three families. We are proud of the generosity displayed by our staff. Not only did they provide gifts and monetary donations, but they also volunteered their time by shopping and wrapping the gifts. Thank you!

Haven of Hope Farm & Residence, Inc. is a nonprofit, faith based organization that was formed for the purposes of empowering and providing opportunities for struggling families to become independent. 

Haven of Hope currently assists with rental deposits, back rental payments to stop eviction proceedings, apartment startup kits, clothing for infants and children, women’s maternity clothing,  food shortfalls at the end of the month, transportation and childcare to facilitate job interviews, GED classes, job placement exams, etc.

On Friday, December 13th, employees from Homestead Funding participated in the 29th Annual Holiday Hunger Appeal for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. There were eleven volunteers, including our own Licensed Loan Originator Michael Siciliano who provided ambiance for the event by playing delightful accordion music. Over six hours and two shifts, volunteers were able to collect over $1500 in donations! From the young child who gave 50¢, to the anonymous $1000 donor, we would like to thank everyone who made a donation! And we especially want to thank our volunteers!

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Schenectady Youth Boxing (SYB) program last night. Homestead Funding would especially like to thank Yarn, who donated their time to perform.

The night included a silent auction and raffle to raise funds for SYB. Co-founders Jeff Christiana and Coach Vince Kettle were at the event, along with several members of the program.

Schenectady Youth Boxing offers young people a positive alternative to what they are exposed to on the streets.
