Readers Write: Thank you for supporting Thanksiving aid

The Island Now

Thank you for your gifts of food, money, and time to make our Thanksgiving deliveries such a success!

Over 2,500 pounds of food were delivered to 30 families to make their own meal in addition to 217 hot meals being delivered throughout Nassau County on Thanksgiving Day to homebound seniors. 377 people in all benefited from your generosity.

None of this would have been possible without the generous support from the following groups: Rotary Club of Williston Park, Garden City Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Mineola – Garden City Rotary Club, Restaurant Depot, and Parkway Community Church.

A special thank you goes to Robert Auricchio, whose fresh produce made the meals extra special, and to the parishioners of St. Joseph’s and the Garden City Community Church for their incredible support.

There are no words to express how grateful we are for helping to make the little idea we had 26 years ago grow into this! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! Have a wonderful holiday season!
