Founded in May 2015, Gullotta House Inc is an award-winning non-profit. Our mission is helping Westchester residents facing an immediate hardship now, tomorrow, and always. Income is not a factor; your hardship is the driving force behind the help and support Gullotta House can offer.
Together, with your generosity, support, and dedication we are ready to help more Westchester County residents. Children, Seniors, Homeless, Families Facing Hardships, our neighbors who had unexpected setbacks. Fire victims, loss of life medical expenses, situations which left our neighbors with no money for heating oil, car repairs and food emergencies.
Gullotta house was there to assist with numerous free oil deliveries, new tires and brakes for those in need. Most recently on the car of a mom who is a widow through a tragic accident and is the sole supporter of her family.
Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic we have served and delivered over 100,000 free meals to many communities where there was a rise in unemployment. Residents with no ability to apply for social assistance, seniors and veterans who cannot leave their homes, and COVID infected families where the children were taking care of the adults. We at Gullotta House are all volunteers and all our volunteers are HEROS for helping to serve or deliver the meals to the many hungry families in the communities most impacted. To date, Gullotta House has severed meals for 34 continuous weeks!
Our call to action and the funds raised in this challenge will go immediately back into the communities we serve, helping those most in need. Expanding and feeding more community members with our Free Hot Community Dinner programs, for as long as there is a demand. Assisting our neighbors who are less fortunate with the necessities of life and offering a helping hand to ALL IN NEED.
We start every year with our “Escape from Sing Sing, Polar Plunge”. In frigid temperatures our volunteers and supporters plunge into the freezing Hudson River to raise money to fund our programs.
Each summer we hold our Charity Duck Race. With the assistance of the Ossining Fire Department we flood a local stream so our rubbery duckies can “race “ across the finish line. This year our Duck Race was a virtual event, which provided additional funding to help support our COVID Meals Program.
Every year for Thanksgiving, we give away hundreds of free turkeys and host a Thanksgiving meal for hundreds of people that would have been alone. This year we are planning to continue these efforts and in place of hosting a Thanksgiving dinner, we are planning on providing and delivering over 5,000 free Thanksgiving meals directly to those would not have a Thanksgiving without our assistance.
