People for People ... is a not-for-profit, 501(c) (3) corporation organized under the laws of the State of New York. Its purpose is to provide temporary assistance to residents with ties to the Times Herald-Record's readership area which covers Orange, Sullivan and Ulster Counties, N.Y. and parts of Pike County, PA.
The People for People Fund was founded in 1985 by the Times Herald-Record and the Junior League of Orange County as a means of helping the people in our communities help each other. Most operating costs -such as rent, utilities and office supplies - are paid for by the Times Herald-Record.
