Hi to all. By this time, we had hoped and thought we would be hugging each other at one of our great events. But, alack and alas, that will have to wait. All of our events, including our Philanthropy event, when we donate to two charities and Hofstra Medical School, will also have to wait a bit. However, it will happen eventually.
Last May we were able to contribute $5,000 to Island Harvest Food Bank, and Bethpage Credit Union matched our funds! This October we were able to contribute another $5,000 to Island Harvest, and hopefully our funds will again be matched by the credit union. Each of our $5,000 donations allows the food bank to purchase and distribute 7,500 meals!
In addition, Nina and Lorraine, our fund raising VP's, came up with a great idea that we, the members personally, could contribute to Island Harvest food bank, in any amount that you are comfortable with, and MWI matched the amount that was raised. We are all aware of how much hunger there is on Long Island. Thank you to all who contributed.
Stay well and hope we hug soon...
