Middletown, NY: The Galleria at Crystal Run has partnered with the Town of Wallkill to support its Friendly Visitor Program, which was developed in partnership with Jewish Family Services to provide services to Senior and/or disabled neighbors who live alone and need assistance. Volunteers provide transportation to local appointments, as well as escort neighbors who need assistance with grocery shopping and many more helpful tasks. Starting January 22, the Galleria at Crystal Run will serve as a food drop off location for the Friendly Visitor Program, helping to enhance the safety for both the volunteers and the recipients in light of the ongoing pandemic.
Here’s How the Program Works:
Volunteers will pick-up food collected at the Galleria at Crystal Run and deliver to local neighbors in need. Community members that are interested in donating non-perishable food items can find food collection boxes at each entrance at the Galleria at Crystal Run:
- Level 1- Near AMC Theater
- Level 1- Near Macy’s and Track 23
- Level 1- Near Target and Round 1
- Level 2- Near Galleria Dental
- Level 2- Near 110 Grill
Hours of Operation for the Galleria at Crystal are as follows: Monday – Saturday: 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Sunday: 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
“Supporting our community, especially in times of unprecedented need, is incredibly important to the Galleria at Crystal Run,” said Eric Price, General Manager at the Galleria at Crystal Run. “Partnering with the Town of Wallkill’s Friendly Visitor program helps us provide a safe and convenient location for our guests and community members to donate to neighbors in need. We are honored to be able to partner with the Town of Wallkill on this great community program especially during these times of greater need.”
“To acknowledge the hardships of today, is to speak the obvious. However, what may not be, is the suffering in silence a number of our community face daily. This partnership is yet another example of how, by working together, we can all help,” said Town of Wallkill Supervisor Frank DenDanto. “Many thanks to the Galleria and Pyramid folks for showing that they care about our community and are willing to do what they can.”
