2011 Holiday Food Drive

Dean G. Skelos

November 16, 2011


With the Holiday season upon us, I would like to invite you to join me in lending your support to my 2011 Holiday Food Drive. 

In partnership with Island Harvest, my office has teamed up with other local elected officials, libraries and community groups in collecting food for those less fortunate.  We are asking for donations of canned goods and non-perishable items such as canned beans, milk, fruits, vegetables, juices, meats,fish, soups, stews and peanut butter that will go to help needy families in our community. I do not need to tell you that many families in our community are struggling. If you are able, a small donation of canned or nonperishable items will go a long way in making sure those less fortunate have access to basic necessities during this holiday season.

I have provided a complete list of drop off locations below along with drop off hours. If you have any questions, please call my office at 516-766-8383.
