Patch thanks Lisa Walker for sharing this story and great photo!
Despite some very difficult days in Sayville following Sandy's arrival the storm's wrath did not effect the outpouring of generosity from Sayville families and organizations.
The Creations Early Childhood Learning Center collected donations to supply Thanksgiving dinners to families in need. Donations included gift cards for turkeys, cans and cans of vegetables, fruits, cranberries and gravy in addition to potatoes and stuffing.
Junior Girl Scout Troop 1294 from Cherry Avenue then took all these items and made Thanksgiving meal baskets for families of four. The effort provided 25 families with a Thanksgiving dinner and stocked the pantry at St. Lawrence the Martyr Parish Outreach. This once again shows how wonderful a community Sayville really is!
