SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- More than 120 Scarsdale Middle School students performed an evening of music and served dinner to homeless residents of the Open Arms Men’s Shelter in White Plains on Monday, May 9.

The music department at Scarsdale Middle School and the seventh grade Fountain House team continued their three-year tradition, to provide an evening of entertainment and a warm meal for the clients who benefit from "Lifting Up Westchester," a social services organization which serves the entire county.

The orchestra, band, and chorus groups performed a variety of music for the clients of the shelter. Following the musical entertainment, the students served dinner and wrapped up the evening with homemade desserts.

Fountain House 7 has been focusing on poverty in Westchester as a part of a year-long service learning project. Students have read articles, answered questions, engaged in conversations, and participated in events centered on people in need and helping those affected by poverty.

“We are so thrilled that Scarsdale students opened their hearts and shared their talents to create a truly special evening for those less fortunate,” said Paul Anderson-Winchell, executive director of Lifting Up Westchester.

Lifting Up Westchester's ( www.liftingupwestchester.org ) mission is to restore hope to Westchester County’s men, women and children in need by providing them with food, shelter and support, lifting them to greater self-sufficiency with dignity and respect.

It is one of the largest social services agencies in Westchester County and has been fulfilling its mission since 1979 through the operation of eight community-based programs. The agency serves 4,000 men, women and children each year providing 140,000 meals to the hungry and 28,000 nights of shelter to the homeless.
