A West Sayville neighborhood is organizing a food drive for victims of Hurricane Sandy on Saturday, November 10 to support Island Harvest's effort to help residents needing supplies.
Community members can drop off donations from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at 65 Cherry Avenue in West Sayville, located just at the entrance to the Sayville football/athletic fields.
What's needed are 'pop top' cans of food, shelf stable milk, juice, water, low sodium canned goods, canned meat, soups, whole wheat pasta, cereal, nutritional beverages such as Boost and Ensure and personal care items.
The drive is being organized by Drew and Joanne Fawcett's family and neighbors. For more information donors can email the Fawcetts at firstname.lastname@example.org
"We are hopeful that people will provide aid to these victims as they enter the Sayville football playoff game that begins at 1 p.m," said Fawcett in an email to Patch.
All the donations will go to Island Harvest, added Fawcett, who is Associate Dean for Institutional Advancement at Selden's Suffolk County Community College.
