Stacey Tompkins, President of Tompkins Excavation, and her son Michael recently volunteered to prepare and hand out a warm healthy meal to the residents of the Jan Peek House in Peekskill, NY. The Jan Peek House is at the center of the Caring for the Homeless (CHOP) program. It serves as a safe haven for the area’s homeless men and women of all ages. The 19-bed facility is open 365 days a year, and provides shelter, food, and a conduit to comprehensive support services to assist the homeless attain independent living.
“This was a wonderful experience for my son and myself”, said Stacey. “It is so important for those of us who are fortunate enough to give back to our local communities to assist others that are less fortunate. It is a great feeling to be able to help in some small way”.
Besides her recent efforts on behalf of the Jan Peek House Shelter for the Homeless, Stacey is a former PTA Executive Board Member in Putnam Valley, as well as a member of the Citizen Advisory Board for the Putnam Valley Central School District and a Parent Representative for the Putnam Valley HS Building Steering Committee. Tompkins has offered support to charities including Caring for the Homeless of Peekskill, Inc., Habitat for Humanity Putnam County, Community Cares of Mahopac, Antonia Arts Studio, and Support Connection.
Tompkins Excavating began as a lawn mowing service until a subdivision was established in Yorktown in the late 1980’s which transformed the business into a full-service residential and commercial landscape construction company. The company is family-owned and operated and has faithfully served clients in Westchester and Putnam Counties over the past 30 years.
