State Senator Joseph Addabbo is partnering with Glendale’ Sacred Heart Church to host a school supply and food drive.
“No student should have to go without adequate school supplies,” Addabbo said. “That is why we are asking you to help make ‘Back to School’ season better for those less fortunate. Anytime is the right time of year to help a fellow New Yorker, but we hope this food and school supply drive will make the start of the new school year special. As always, I am proud to once again collaborate with Sacred Heart for this wonderful cause and look forward to continuing our efforts in the future.”
The request donations are: school supplies such as spiral notebooks, pencils, pens, crayons, loose-leaf paper, construction paper; and all sizes of plastic sandwich and snack-size storage bags. Other items requested include canned goods and dry foods, such as soup, pasta, beef stew, cereal, oatmeal, tea, coffee, powdered creamer, sugar, condiments, juice, and ice tea mix. In addition, donations of toiletries such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, bar soap, feminine products, toilet paper, paper towels, baby wipes, disposable diapers, tissues, and shampoo will be welcomed.
Those who wish to make donations may drop items off at the Sacred Heart Food Pantry, located at 77-05 84th St., in Glendale, or at Senator Addabbo’s Middle Village Office, located at 66-85 73rd Place, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
