A new non-profit directory and calendar for Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow
July 22, 2022
The Community Coalition of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow (C2), a monthly open forum for local nonprofit organizations and village government officials, has created a community events calendar for both villages. calendar website, www.community10591.orgalso includes a link to a volunteer directory to connect residents to local volunteer opportunities.
“C2 members from both villages have been working together since 2009 to share resources and coordinate events. The Community Food Pantry, Rotary, Kids’ Club – virtually every local non-profit organization supports the residents of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown,” commented Jennifer Liddy Green, President of the Kids’ Club of Tarrytown & Sleepy Hollow who founded C2. “C2 members saw the need for an integrated calendar to showcase the full range of activities and offerings in both villages. So we created one!
Nonprofits based in Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown can list their local events on the Community10591 calendar for free. Matt Arone, Superintendent of the Sleepy Hollow Recreation and Parks Department was a member of the steering committee that conceptualized the schedule and volunteer directory. “Of course, our villages are full of autumnal events,” Arone said. “But if you look at the summer months, you’ll see a lot of activity. We are more than Halloween!”
The Volunteer Directory will connect people to village events and non-profit organizations where they can use their time and talent to make a difference. “When I moved to Sleepy Hollow, I wanted to volunteer, but I didn’t know where to start,” said Char Weigel, vice president of the Kids’ Club. “I am thrilled with how this directory will help people connect with the many volunteer options in our community. And if you’re new, like me, you can make a difference while making friends.
“Seeing all the local events and activities in one place shows the vibrancy of our community,” said Alissa Fasman, Tarrytown Village Assistant Administrator/Deputy Clerk and Steering Committee Member. Fasman continued, “The directory will help us engage more volunteers on our boards, councils and committees, as well as our volunteer fire department and ambulance corps.
The villages of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown may be famous for being “headless,” but this new resource shows that Community 10591 is running on its heart. The volunteer calendar and directory, including guidelines for participation, are at www.community10591.org, and can also be found on the Village of Sleepy Hollow, Village of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow Tarrytown Chamber of Commerce websites (C2 encourages anyone to link to the calendar). Nonprofits interested in registering an event or joining the C2 mailing list and being included in the 2023 Volunteer Directory can contact [email protected]
