Brookhaven Town Supervisor Mark Lesko, and Deputy Supervisor Kathleen Walsh announced the town's support behind Island Harvest's 2nd Annual "Make a Splash" food drive. As such, the leaders are encouraging residents to frequent the town pools, such as the Holtsville pool, from now until August 12 to drop off non-perishable food items.
“I strongly encourage those who use the Town of Brookhaven’s pools, as well as all residents, to give back to the community by donating to this great cause,” Supervisor Lesko stated in a release. “I hope that we will continue to build off the tremendous success of last year’s drive and make an even bigger splash in the fight against hunger.”
Last year, Brookaven received a special recognition from Island Harvest for collecting more than 1,000 pounds of non-perishable food from its pool locations in Holtsville, Centereach and Mastic.
Island Harvest operates across Long Island stocking a network of nearly 600 food pantries, soup kitchens and other food support programs. For directions to the Holtsville pool and other "Make a Splash" drop sites, visit www.brookhaven.org.
