Together we are empowering individuals and families in our community – especially those in economic need – to achieve their highest potential. Your continued generosity will allow Hudson Guild to meet needs during the holiday season through our Adopt A Family program, Winter Warmth Drive, Food Drive, winter holiday celebrations at our centers, and more!



Thanksgiving Festivities

Last month we held our annual Community Thanksgiving lunch and dinner at Fulton Community Center. The Wayans Family Room was filled with individuals, families, older adult participants, and community members who gathered and enjoyed a delicious meal together. Joined by their families, early childhood education participants enjoyed a thanksgiving lunch at our Amsterdam, Polly Dodge, Clinton, Elliott, & Children’s centers! Teen program participants celebrated Thanksgiving at Roc Nation with a pre-thanksgiving meal and a tour around the space to learn more about careers in entertainment.
