Residents at Kendal on Hudson, the continuing care retirement community located in Sleepy Hollow, recently gave donations to five organizations in the Village.
They included the Volunteer Fire Department and the Volunteer EMS, Open Door, Community Opportunity Center and Even Start.
"These are wonderful and dedicated organizations that serve a wide variety of members in the community and we felt strongly that we wanted to contribute to their continuing work," said Penny Brome a resident at Kendal.
Kendal has been opened for two and a half years. Many of the residents are originally from the surrounding area and they are all increasingly becoming part of the community. They volunteer at local institutions including Phelps Hospital, Warner Library, the Life Center and Even Start and are active in cultural events.

Kendal on Hudson is one of 13 Kendal communities and programs in operation in the northeastern US.
