#WAPPINGERSRISES- Is a Grassroots effort by village residents aimed at bringing us closer together as a community and to attract strong businesses, families, and individuals to the Village of Wappinger’s Falls. The “Revival” All signs are indicating that this village is in the early stages of a true “Revival” period: Six new businesses have opened their doors in the last 3 months, another 3-4 are anticipated shortly, the Planning Board is reviewing a record number of applications for new businesses and building renovations, construction projects that have been on hold for years are now coming back to life, real estate professionals are reporting escalated interest in both commercial and residential properties, and the village streets and shops are coming alive with visible activity from long-time residents, newcomers, and visitors alike. In order to promote this effort- we are asking that everyone (residents, visitors, businesses, village: Police, Fire, Highway, Recreation, Historical, Business, Civics, …etc) please include the #WAPPINGERSRISES hashtag in your posts on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and any other social media. This will give the general public a single source to access information ( announcements, events, live music, food/drink specials, historical facts, volunteer opportunities…etc.) within the village almost real-time...we welcome anything positive that brings us together as a community. This WILL NOT be a forum for opinions or debate.

We recently did a spotlight on Fareground and their Tiny Food Pantries in Beacon + The Village of Wappingers Falls (Methodist Church). Link in our comments to the spotlight and to donate. We just saw the wonderful folks at Rexhill crafted this 3rd pantry for TFP by Fareground. Stay tuned to @rexhillstudio and @fareground to see where it ends up. Thanks Rexhill Studio for letting us share your beautiful work for the community.

We built a Tiny Food Pantry (TFP) for @fareground a local non-profit dedicated to food justice and addressing chronic hunger in our community. The TFP are accessible 24/7 for anyone to “take what they need and leave what they can” of non-perishable items, toiletries and baby items. Before this has a final home (stay tuned!), please consider making a monetary donation to support their important work, such as providing take away dinners to local families during this crazy time. You can also purchase TFP items through their amazon wish list, or volunteer to work with them. Check the link in our bio to find out more!! #fightinghunger #dowhatyoucan #communityfirst

I have read some stories of the tragic fire. I undrstand that many families have lost thier homes and everything in them. Coincidentally, I recently purchased new Living room furniture. I was hoping to donate my 3 piece sectional to a charity group of some sort but NYS law will not allow me to do this because one of the pieces has a sleeper in it. I'm not going to lie; the longest piece that has the two recliners and a fold down table shows wear but no tear. the other two pieces, including the sleeper, are in good condition. I was going to put it on Facebook marketplace. If any of these families can use this I would be willing to give it away. Someone would have to come to Hyde Park to pick it up. Private Message me if this can be arranged. i will not put it on Marketplace until Tuesday. Thoughts and Prayers for all and thank you to all first responders for doing what you do.
