Thanksgiving Thanks

 

What a privilege to see the success of Crossover Christian Church’s Thanksgiving Food Drive this past November. A total of 118 families got to enjoy the holiday with dignity and joy as a result of this drive. We were also able to resource a soup kitchen for the holiday.

 

The buildup to a successful drive is the result of a remarkable communal effort of fundraising and donations:

 

  •  The use of the Heritage Center in Mt. Sinai as a distribution point.

  •  Restaurant Depot, Bohemia provided turkeys at deeply discounted prices.

  •  Dave Steele Farms, Cutchogue donated 600 lbs. of potatoes. 

  •  Sang Lee Farms, Cutchogue donated fresh produce for 120 families. 

  •  Shield’s Fine Wines collected food on our behalf. 

  •  Stop and Shop gave gift cards that went toward the purchase of pies. 

  •  The Crossover community provided all the non-perishables and the  volunteer impetus that carries this drive from start to finish.

  •  School social workers across more than a dozen school districts identified  families in need. Agents from OCFS servicing both Suffolk and Nassau  counties deliver food to families desperately struggling to survive.

 

 

I am profoundly grateful for the compassionate care extended by many. Together, we have made a difference.
