The money raised will help charitable organizations like the Fishkill Food Pantry of the Dutch Reformed Church and the Burn Center of Newburgh. Every year the ladies buy Christmas presents for the 62 retired firefighters residing in the Hudson Valley Fire Home in Hudson, NY besides donating to their recreation fund.
