I am the proud owner of Bayhorse Gazebos and Barns, a family owned and operated business in Dutchess County. I am blessed to share my life with my 2 children, Mitch and Chelsea, my two grandchildren and my amazing wife Carla, who recently retired after working in the health care industry for 38 years. I have been very active in my community and church my whole life. After losing several friends to cancer in our small town of Staatsburg, I was looking for a source that shared the same values as mine that could have helped these families.
I’ve known Krista for years and heard from a friend about Sparrow's Nest of the Hudson Valley and the Team Sparrow runs organized to raise funds to feed the same people I was looking to help. It was the partnership I was looking for. Krista and I share the same beliefs in that we believe helping others is a true blessing. I’m very proud of my relationship with the charity from a spiritual and business view. I’m proud to say that over eight years my family and business have donated $250,000 to Sparrows Nest. That’s a lot of meals.
God Bless Krista and her army of helpers for being such a positive and powerful presence in our communities!

Sparrow's Nest was founded in 2012. Today they feed an average of 400
people each week and more than 3,000 individuals since its inception.
Sparrow's Nest prepares and delivers homemade meals every Tuesday to caregivers in the area. One of Sparrow's Nest's primary goals is to help caregivers take care of their children as they fight this debilitating disease. The rewards are two-fold. The meals not only help take some of the burden away from everyday responsibilities, but also provide some financial relief. Funding is needed for the cost of food for the families.
The Sparrow's Nest mission is founded by love and community, cooking and delivering meals to the families of caregivers with cancer in the Hudson Valley. For more information, please contact Krista Jones, Founder, at 845.204.9421 or visit their website at www.SparrowsNestCharity.org
Sparrow’s Nest is a 501(c)(3) charity established in 2012.
