The Town of Brookhaven’s Youth Bureau’s Thanksgiving Food Drive is running now until November 18.
The town, which is running the food drive through the youth bureau’s INTERFACE program, said suggested food items for donations include all non-perishables including, but not limited to, canned soups, canned cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, stuffing mix, instant potatoes, canned sweet or white potatoes, rice, canned vegetables, jar or canned sauce, macaroni, canned fruit, puddings, jello, cookie mix, cake mix and icing and juice. Due to refrigeration requirements we cannot accept frozen turkeys, but residents could donate $15.00 Gift Certificates to a local supermarket where the family can purchase a turkey.
Hours of operation for the Town of Brookhaven’s Youth Bureau INTERFACE Program’s Thanksgiving Food Drive are from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information contact Maria Polak at the Town of Brookhaven Youth Bureau at 451-8014 or visit http://www.brookhaven.org/.
“I thank the volunteers of the INTERFACE program who work year round to help those who are less fortunate,” said Brookhaven Supervisor Mark Lesko. “They could be anyone from a stranger to our next door neighbors, so I urge everyone to donate whatever they can to help make the holidays a happier time for all.”
Drop off points for the food drive are:
- Brookhaven Town Hall, One Independence Hill in Farmingville
- Henrietta Acampora Recreation Center, 39 Montauk Highway in Blue Point
