Every so often a meme floats around the internet titled “Heroes don’t always wear capes.” Red Hook Responds is fortunate enough to be the recipient of one hero’s generosity: William Abela, owner of CJ’s Pizzeria in Rhinebeck. From its inception, RHR’s dinners have included pizza DONATED by CJ’s Pizzeria. At the height of the pandemic, William was baking and donating 35-40 pies each week for those in need. He also donated enough boxes each week for individual dinners so that RHR would not have to bear the expense. Post-pandemic his generosity continues on a bi-weekly basis, providing anywhere from nine to twenty pies and boxes to those served by Red Hook Responds.
