Shining Child- Trinity Columbel

Trinity Columbel is a 9-year-old girl from our community who decided to do something extra special on her 9th birthday, this year.

She decided for her birthday this year to have her friends and family give her donations so she can donate those items to a local animal shelter. Trinity has a huge heart and we want to recognize her efforts to make a difference in our community along with her parents. Her desire to help the Kent Animal Shelter in Calverton has made her our Shining Child of the month.

Great job, Trinity!

2nd Annual Give A Gobble Food Drive

Since it is #GivingTuesday I wanted to reflect back on what an amazing job a young girl in our community did this month to give back to others this Thanksgiving.

10 year old, Lana Moreno has a heart of gold and held her 2nd annual Give A Gobble Food Drive on Saturday, November 11th at the AMVets Post 48 in Ronkonkoma.

 Lana Moreno started Lana’s World Hunger Dream at 8 years old in August of 2015 because she wanted to help people in need of food on Long Island. Lana has been collecting donations, shopping for food, donating items, running food drives and participating in community events for the past 2+ years. Last year the “Give a Gobble Food Drive” was a huge success and 117 Turkeys and trimmings were collected to donate to the Lighthouse Mission of Bellport. Lana was so grateful and excited with that number but, we knew she could top it and SHE DID!
