End of the Road for Needs Clearing House

Joe Kaliko has announced that the Needs Clearing House will be closing its doors on June 30 2018 after five years of serving the community.

Kaliko’s organization has successfully raised funds for worthy causes in Greenwich and beyond. In March 2016, Needs Clearing House donated $10,000 to the family of young girl with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy.

In November 2015, Needs Clearing House teamed up with Chicken Joe’s Rides for Kids for a food drive in time for Thanksgiving.

In 2015, Needs Clearing House sponsored monthly Pizza Night events at Abilis in Greenwich.

These are but a few examples of Needs Clearing House efforts over the years.

“We have been incredibly successful raising and distributing over a million dollars in cash, goods and services to those in need,” Kaliko said on Monday.

Kaliko said that although Needs Clearing House is no longer accepting donations, people can make donations directly to the charities that Needs Clearing House has supported over the years.

“We especially want to thank our many supporters,” Kaliko said. “We could not have done it without you. Thank you.”
