Support Those Affected by Superstorm Sandy
As we all recover from the effects of the recent storm and find ourselves grateful for basics like light, heat, and water, many of us are thinking about how to help those still in need. A great way to get involved is to support the 11th grade at Green Meadow, which is collecting food and other supplies for those affected by the storm locally. Items can be dropped off at 307 Hungry Hollow Rd., Chestnut Ridge, NY 10977.
Here’s a note from the students: “We urge you to bring in non-perishable food items and toiletries, such as canned goods, soups, pasta, rice, beans, peanut butter, diapers, shampoo, and laundry soap. We have collection boxes in the lower school and high school, and as they fill, we will deliver them to families and to the People to People Food Pantry. Please be generous! We will continue the food drive through December.”
Still another way to help, through Green Meadow, is to supply impoverished local families with Thanksgiving dinner. For participants in our Neighbor to Neighbor program, we are collecting food suitable for a Thanksgiving feast. Items can be dropped at the address above, marked “Neighbor to Neighbor”.
