Final Food Drive Update

We are happy to announce that today we completed the ECC Food Drive with the funds raised, and was able to provide over 140 food kits to the Greenburgh Community Action Partnership (CAP). This food will be distributed to families in need within Greenburgh.

Since the start of our Food Drive in November, we had raised over $10,000 and provided over 340 families throughout Westchester with food over the past few months. We could have not done this without the support of the Edgemont community, and we thank you for any assistance that you provided to make this all happen.

The work to help our neighbors in need is never done, so please be on the look out for future community philanthropic opportunities. Thank you, Edgemont!

SBNC nominates two candidates

On Wednesday, March 18th, the Edgemont School Board Nominating Committee recommended Mariquita Blumberg and Dolya Fleck to fill two impending vacancies on the Board of Education. Mariquita is currently completing her first term on the Board.

The School Board Nominating Committee was forced to conduct its work remotely during this challenging year. We thank the fourteen members of Committee, representing seven civic associations and the Edgemont Community Council, and appreciate their commitment to helping the Edgemont School District.

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and look forward to brighter times ahead.

ECC Updates: 3/10/21

There were a few follow-up items from our Monday, 3/1 meeting so we wanted to keep everyone in the loop.

  1. Edgemont Police Report: Lt. Hall provided a detailed report on all Edgemont 2020 calls to the GPD. Several people requested a soft copy of the report, which you can find here.
  2. Greenburgh Housing Authority: We passed a resolution requesting the Town take action to protect the residents who are being relocated from their homes. You can find the letter to the Town here. Also, this matter was discussed again last night at the Town Board Work Session and you can find a replay of it here.
  3. Snow Removal on Sidewalks: We received a number of requests and inquiries from residents asking if there was a company they could pay to handle snow removal on the sidewalks in front of their homes. We’ll work with the Civic Associations to take an exploratory look at this. Please help us out by letting us know if a) you would be interested in this type of optional service or b) if you have a reputable company you’d recommend. You can email us at edgemontcommunitycouncil@gmail.com.

Thanks and a reminder that due to the Annual Meeting and Spring Break, our next meeting is Monday, 3/22. See you there!

Greenburgh Covid Vaccinations: Wed 3/10

Please see the below message regarding Covid vaccinations here in Greenburgh on Wed, March 10th. If you qualify and are interested, please contact audrey.prashker@verizon.net to start the process.

Hi Everyone – I hope you are all doing well on this lovely winter day and that all is well.  I wanted to let everyone know that if you have not yet received a COVID vaccine and you have comorbidities, the Greenburgh Neighborhood Health Center on Knollwood Rd. (across from the Greenburgh Library) is doing mass vaccinations on Wednesday, March 10 from 9-6.  They are only vaccinating those with UNDERLYING CONDITIONS.  If you or someone you know – who lives in Greenburgh only – fits these criteria please send me their name, dob, and phone numbers so I can forward to one of my friends who is a COVID angel and then someone will get back to them.
