EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Members of the 2015-2016 WestCOP/Eastchester Community Action Partnership Advisory Council held their first meeting last month.
The meeting was Nov. 11 at the ECAP building on Main Street in Tuckahoe.
Most members are repeating terms of service, but the newly elected or appointed board includes benefactors and volunteers Daniel Lang and John Spruck, Tuckahoe village Trustee Steve Alfasi and Tuckahoe resident Dream Harris.
The tripartite board consists of 15 members, including civic representatives and elected officials.
Board Chair Lovely Billups welcomed the new members and expressed confidence that ECAP will continue its service to the youths, seniors and families in Tuckahoe, Eastchester and Bronxville under the leadership of Don Brown, area director.
The board is planning the traditional Martin Luther King Day Breakfast on Jan. 18.
The WestCOP Eastchester Community Action Partnership is located in the center of the three neighboring communities of Bronxville Eastchester and Tuckahoe. Its purpose is to help empower the community by satisfying the immediate needs of its clients while addressing the long-term goals needed for success.
It offers a daily variety of ready-to-eat meals provided by its partnership with local businesses. It also offers a number of services in-house as well as referrals. These services include employment and training, eviction prevention, back-to-school clothing, holiday baskets and toys, and gently used clothing and furniture.
