It is Fall and we are really enjoying this delightful book, Porcupine’s Pie.
This family friendly story is all about thankfulness and generosity that even has a recipe for friendship pie in the back of the book. We can not wait to make our own friendship pie with some of our favorite ingredients after reading this book. We loved reading it!
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!
Thanksgiving is a day to enjoy all the blessings in our lives! I have to say we are so blessed to have such amazing family and friends in our lives and we always look forward to reflecting back on the year and giving thanks!
Lana Moreno is a 9-year old girl who is making a huge difference in our community. She inspires us with her huge heart and compassion for others. This past Saturday we were part of her Give a Gobble Food Drive and it was a huge success.
Lana all year round collects for local food pantries in our community and you can follow her on her Facebook page- Lana’s World Hunger Dream. She wants to make a difference by feeding those in need. One food pantry that she has a wonderful relationship with is the Lighthouse Mission. This past weekend all of the turkeys and food items she collected went to the Lighthouse mission located in North Bellport.
