Points Of View

Et Tu COLA Seekers

Thanks, for pressing on in the tireless effort to obtain fair and just payment for services and wages for our employees.  We in Connecticut have seen a mere 1% COLA in the past five years (one half percent in two consecutive fiscal years). Our colleagues in Massachusetts have gone more than 20 years without a COLA but some services are starting to realize rate/contract adjustments due to some landmark legislation passed more than five years ago now being implemented.  Invariably, we will all keep on pulling for each other and checking in on each other’s progress in the days ahead.In solidarity with your efforts,Ron CretaroExecutive DirectorCT Association of Nonprofits (CT Nonprofits)

New York Common Pantry An Uncommon Solution to Hunger

New York Common Pantry An Uncommon Solution to HungerNew York Common Pantry (NYCP) is very much “the little emergency food program that could”.   The most surprising thing about the organization, formerly known as Yorkville Common Pantry, may not be that they provided 2.5 million meals to almost 300,000 recipients last year.   Or, that their kitchen serves five sit down breakfasts and three hot dinners as well as four takeaway “brown bag” meals every week – 75,147 meals annually – for up to 400  men, women and children per seating.
