The tremendous generosity of our community raised $6,325 in gift cards. This will make the holidays a lot brighter for Veterans at the Medical Center.
On December 19th members of the New Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce Benevolence Fund made a donation of $1,000 in support of the Nassau County Firefighters Wounded Warriors Fund.
This is an annual fund raiser to support the Veterans at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda Maryland.
The Firefighters make several trips to Maryland with clothing and supplies for the Veterans in support of their recovery.
Christmas Delivery Complete!
On December 19th, the final delivery was completed for the NHP Chamber of Commerce Annual Community Food Drive. Phase two of the collection, delivered non-perishable food items for the upcoming Christmas Holiday. A total of 100 bags of food was delivered
to the Holy Spirit Food Pantry in NHP and the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency. All receiving Organizations were truly touched by the amazing generosity of our residents, businesses, and Chambers members. With the increase in need, proceeds were welcome and will make a significant impact in helping community members affected by current economic hardships. During this year’s drive, a total of 175 bags of food were delivered and was by far, the largest collected to date since the inception of the drive. Thank you to all our business which participated as drop locations— ACE Hardware, American Community Bank, City Line Florist, Flushing Bank, Gourmet Bake Shop, Harbor Child Care, M&T Bank, NY Life Insurance, Push Fitness, Ridgewood Savings Bank, Tutor Time Child Care, Valley Bank, and Village Hall.
Special thanks to all our volunteers who helped collect, organize, and distribute the drive proceeds and to Flushing Bank for their generous donation of $500.00 in non-perishable food items and tote bags. THANK YOU for helping our community residents!

Thank you Rich and Ralph for your leadership and Dean for his expert advisement to get it done! NICE JOB!
Another Amazing Charity Golf Outing
It was a beautiful sunny day at Harbor Links Golf Course in Port Washington, New York. There were about 100 golfers who came out to tee off at noon.
Before tee off, the Chamber and Lions Club had an excellent buffet breakfast, and the Stretch Labs team (from the NHP location) was there to stretch the golfers so they could have a wonderful time on the course with increased range and little thought to muscle or joint pain. One of the golfers hit a 50 ft. putt!!
Ed Stone and his driver Gail Henry-Murray, carted around to get great pictures of everyone having fun on this beautiful course. Once finished golfing, everyone returned to enjoy cocktails and appetizers and was then offered a memorable dinner to honor true heroes, Mike and Mary Stein. William (Buddy) Sheehan of the Lion's Club gave a heartwarming and touching tribute to these heroes.
Our elected officials showed up to golf and dinner to present proclamations.
We must thank Chris Vulpis, Ralph Ventura Co-Chairs, and the golf committee -Mark Laytin, Richard DeMartino, Meghav Parikh, Ron Shapiro, Richard Pallisco, Richard Basulto, and Buddy Sheehan for putting everything together. A special shout out to Richard DeMartino and Mark Laytin who offered their time and effort to collect the many prizes raffled off to raise funds for the charity. And of course, we cannot forget the following wonderful contributors to this event. President Cheryl Fajardo of NHP Chamber, Saveeta Barnes, and Lily Buonfrisco of M&T Bank - Title Sponsor, Smitha Lukose-Khun Flushing Bank, Sheila McKeough, and Zulema Lopez -Roslyn Savings Bank, Jacqueline Ramos, and Monica Callier -Jovia FCU, Mary Mofica, and Lee Pallisco, Cellini Lodge #2206), Allyson Swidler, Faith Daniels, and Debra Gambino and the incredible businesses and members who stepped up and helped to raise the most money we have raised for our Charities.
