This past Saturday, November 23, 2013, Senator Lee Zeldin (R, C, I—Shirley) attended the Pronto Food Pantry Dedication in Honor of Nilda Alvarez.
Pronto of Long Island is a non-profit, community outreach center that provides food, clothing, and support to those in need in Brentwood, Bay Shore, Central Islip and the neighboring communities.

“With the holidays approaching, it is especially important to recognize our local organizations, like Pronto, for the good that they do to better our communities,” said Senator Zeldin. “I was moved by the dedication of the organization’s volunteers and I was proud to honor Nilda, for her relentless devotion to Pronto’s mission. Nilda’s legacy should serve as an inspiration to the rest of us this holiday season, to reach out where we can and make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.”
