The DDX3X Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2016 to find a cure for DDX3X gene mutations. As part of our mission, the Foundation will support existing research, education, and treatment programs focused on DDX3X gene mutations. The Foundation has three primary functions: research, connecting families, and raising awareness. Formed by parents of DDX3X children, we understand the challenges associated with raising a child with a DDX3X gene mutation. Many of the families affected by DDX3X went years without knowing the cause of their child’s delays. We exist to connect and support you.

he Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry has been serving the Rivertowns since 2011 by providing food in an accessible area for all citizens in need. We rely on charitable donations to feed the 100+ families that rely on us. Ultimately, we hope to help ease the burden of those in need by providing them with the food they need to help them focus on the futures they want.

The Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry at South Presbyterian Church opened its doors in January 2011 in response to the growing demand for food assistance in Dobbs Ferry, New York as well as people from the neighboring villages of Ardsley, Hastings-on-Hudson and Irvington. However, the Pantry is open to and serves everyone who expresses need, regardless of residency status, religious belief or affiliation.

The church currently provides the space free of charge. Our staff is 100% volunteer. So all of the money donated to the pantry is used to purchase items that go directly to those who need assistance.

The pantry is open every Wednesdays from 10am to noon. On average, we serve 40 families–approximately 145 individuals, many of whom are young children and seniors. As our donation base increased this year, we have added evening hours – once a month on the last Wednesday of each month from 5:30 to 7pm.

The South Presbyterian Church sponsors the Food Pantry as an offshoot of its Hunger Ministries. It is 501(c)(3) organization. So contributions and donations are fully tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Volunteers and donors are both members and non-members.

It is run by a coalition of about 25 community members from Dobbs Ferry, Hastings on Hudson and Ardsley.

We are authorized members of the Food Bank for Westchester. The Food Bank allows us to purchase food for the pantry at a lower cost than ordinarily obtained from a grocery store.

The ‘Draw For Paws’ concept was created in late 2018 by 8-year-old Scarlett Chwatko, an animal lover and SPCA volunteer who often said she would “adopt every animal on the world” and that she “would like to be dipped in a bucket of puppies.” She wanted to be a professional soccer player artist veterinarian, who would help all animals (except snakes). Combining her passion for animals and art, the idea for draw for paws was born, with her simple idea: donate $20 or more to the SPCA and Scarlett would draw a portrait of your pet or favorite animal. When Scarlett lost her cancer battle in 2019, her friends took over, dubbing themselves the “ScarlySquad” and promising to fulfill her vision. The Scarlysquad invites anyone, any age, to become a draw for paws artist- and in its first year, over 75 artists, from all over the country, have helped raise tens of thousands of dollars to rescue animals in need through portraits, food drives, merchandise and more.

E•A•T is committed to finding a cure for food allergies by directly funding the researchers who strive to find solutions for this growing epidemic.

E•A•T is the only independent organization solely focused on raising money for a cure. We will not venture into other activities as there are many other organizations focused on advocacy, education, awareness, support, and product development. Our only job at E•A•T is to relentlessly raise money for food allergy research.

We underwrite our administrative costs so that 100% of net proceeds goes straight to the scientists working to find a cure. Researchers need money to accelerate the pace of clinical trials.

E•A•T was founded on the premise that everyone’s contribution, big or small, is crucial. If we all do something small, collectively we can do something extraordinary. If everyone in the U.S. touched by food allergies (over 30 million) gave just $10 we could channel close to $300 million this year! That would go a long way towards the over $400 million research funding gap.
