Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
On November 30th, Purple Heart Homes (Downstate Chapter) held a fundraiser hosted by THE GRANDSTAND 11/30...
The benefit for disabled area veterans--raffles, food, and music--drew a packed house.

For those who don't know, Purple Heart Homes
was funded by two Combat Wounded Veterans, Dale Beatty and John
Gallina, who are on a mission to care for other service connected
disabled Veterans by providing housing solutions either through rehab or
remodeling of current housing or acquiring new housing to ensure safe,
barrier-free living for Veterans with disabilities and the loved ones
who care for them.
The 501C-3 Non-profit operates in Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester, Rockland, and Orange counties as well as the 5 Boroughs of NYC.
you couldn't make last night's event at The Grandstand but would still
like to make a donation, the Downstate Chapter's FB page can be found here or you can contact Mark Franzoso directly.
Music at the 11/30 fundraiser was provided by MaryAnn Renza & Friends.
