Hudson Link supporters know that we are more than just a college program. When students come home, the Hudson Link Alumni Services Department provides them with the resources they need to get back on their feet. This year on Giving Tuesday, we are asking our community to help us provide our released alumni with some of the essentials as part of our Giving Comfort campaign.
If you have ever visited Hudson Link’s headquarters in Ossining, you have already seen The Boutique, where alumni can pick up gently used business attire that will help them show up to an interview or the first day on the job looking sharp. Giving Tuesday donations of brand new items help us round out our donated inventory so we can provide underwear, undershirts, socks, cozy sweats, and other basic necessities. This year we have even added prepaid cell phones to get our alumni connected to their loved ones as quickly as possible.
Supporting the Giving Comfort campaign is as simple as shopping on Amazon: visit the Giving Comfort wishlist, select the items you wish to purchase for Hudson Link alumni, and make sure to choose Hudson Link’s office as the shipping destination at checkout. We will make sure that all donated items are distributed to Hudson Linkers on their way home to their communities. Please make sure to include a gift note so we know who each donation is coming from.
Thank you for all you do for Hudson Link alumni, this Giving Tuesday and all year round. We could not do this work without you!
