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!

Pooh the Black Bear at Brookhaven Wildlife Center

Support the Brookhaven Wildlife Center by helping raise money for Pooh the resident Black Bear.

According to the Brookhaven Wildlife Center, Pooh says: “I am getting older, I am 19 years old now and have been struggling over the past few months, getting old is hard on us bears too. I have Osteoarthritis and it causes me pain and stiffness and I limp when I walk. Thankfully my fantastic veterinarians found a medication, and my wonderful caretakers give it to me when I need it. It helps me to feel better and it doesn’t hurt as much when I walk. The problem is it costs A LOT of money…..$400 a month!

Toy Collection for HELP Suffolk

Bring smiles to those in need this Christmas season.

HELP Suffolk in Bellport helps house families who have reached hard times and they help them get back on their feet. As a parent, when you reach the point of looking for help and then it is the Holiday season it brings on more stress. HELP Suffolk relies on donations from the community.

We would like to help the parents who would love to buy their child a gift but, do not have the extra means to do so. As a parent the most heartbreaking thing during the holidays would be not to be able to provide your child with a present. The joy of watching your child opening a present with excitement is something we all look forward to. But, imagine you really could not buy a gift for your child. Let’s give back during the most wonderful time of the year.
