"“Supporting organizations helping children and the animals they love.”

For Nancy Allen, there was no more important question for someone she hadn’t seen in a while than, “How are your kids?”

She always wanted to know how everyone’s children were, how school was going, or any other tidbits of information that made raising children the most important and challenging thing parents do in their lives.

Similarly, her eyes never opened wider than when talking about animals. Her love never more visible than when she was cuddling one of her dogs and pain and anger never more apparent than at the thought of an animal abused or hurt.

“Nancy’s Place,” supports organizations helping children and the animals they love. This fund will aid, among others, organizations that keep children safe from violence; provide food for hungry children; help kids navigate difficult waters of growing up in our society and provide mental health support for those who need assistance.

  Donate Friends of River Hook Fund
"In 2018, the Village of Upper Nyack (“Village”) acquired a 12-acre property, which it has designated River Hook – The Hester Haring Cason Preserve (“River Hook” or the “Preserve”).

The Village intends for River Hook to be a serene sanctuary for Village residents, and a place for people to gather to enjoy low-impact recreational activities.

Unfortunately, the property had been neglected for many years prior to the Village’s acquisition. In 2020, a group of Village residents formed Friends of River Hook, Inc. (“FRH”) as a New York not-for-profit corporation, for the charitable purpose of beautifying and enhancing River Hook.

FRH’s mission is to help improve and maintain the natural landscape and the public buildings located within the Preserve, and to encourage an appreciation of the ecology, architecture and history of the Preserve.

FRH’s initial activities may include general clean-up and revitalization of the grounds and structures within the Preserve, restoration of a large meadow that has been overgrown with non-native invasive species, the development of a tree nursery and a community garden, and supporting collaborations with local educators, artists and other groups in order to promote community engagement with the Preserve.
