Sparrow’s Nest provides homemade meals to the families of caregivers and children diagnosed with cancer.
From November 15, 2018, to January 2, 2019, customers who purchased or leased a new Subaru vehicle at Mid Hudson Subaru were able to select from a list of charities to receive a donation of $250 from Subaru and Mid Hudson Subaru.
Almost all, 97.78 percent, of Mid Hudson Subaru customers chose Sparrow’s Nest as their recipient of the donation, according to Mid Hudson Subaru.
“I can’t express my gratitude enough for this amazing donation or the amazing owner and staff who worked tirelessly to make this happen,” Krista Jones wrote on Sparrow’s Nest Instagram.
In 2012, Sparrow’s Nest of the Hudson Valley was created to cook meals for families of Hudson Valley moms diagnosed with cancer. In 2017, they also began feeding local families with children diagnosed with cancer and in 2018 expanded their service to offer meals to families located within a 35-mile radius from their kitchen in Wappingers Falls.
Since the charity's inception, Sparrow’s Nest of the Hudson Valley has fed thousands of people in the local area. The charity currently feeds around 360 local residents each week.
