The time of year has once again come for the coordination of volunteers and donations for the Marion Stegmann fund.

MS 1


What began as one woman's dream has now become a multi-community effort that annually provides food, toys and clothing to families in need during the holiday season. The Kinderhook Elks Lodge #2530 and the Ghent VFW post #5933 coordinate to make this annual drive a success every year. This cannot be done without involvement of the community!

The fund looks to those individuals, churches, business and civic organizations for its financial support and physical and personal involvment to "make it happen". The program has grown from helping 94 needy families back in 1986 to several hundred today.  Additionally we have been able to extend assistance to individuals in need and the area food pantries throughout the year.  Funds can be sent to:

The Marion Stegmann Fund
Po Box 514
Kinderhook, NY 12106
