Tompkins Excavating Reaches out to Help Open Door with Food Deliveries

Stacey Tompkins of Tompkins Excavating wanted to find a way to help during these unprecedented times so she reached out to Volunteer New York and offered a truck and driver to help with deliveries. Soon she was connected with Feeding Westchester, which distributes 50,000 pounds of food a month to those in need, but due to the pandemic, needed some extra help with deliveries. For the past six weeks a driver from Tompkins Excavating has been delivering a pallet of food from Feeding Westchester’s warehouse in Elmsford to the Open Door Family Medical Clinic in Ossining where it is sorted, bundled, and packaged up to be donated to 100 households.
