The Greater New Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce Annual Holiday Food Drive has been completed!

This year, the Chamber delivered over 1500lbs of non-perishable food items to the Greater NHP community for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. The success of this Drive came from the many small businesses, community residents, and volunteers who provided their time and generous donations.

To kick off preparation for the Christmas delivery, volunteers came to GEICO to assist with sorting the collected proceeds on Saturday, December 16th.  All the extra hands allowed for a smooth and efficient organizing process!

Special thanks to the NHP Fire Department, Chief Joe Barbagallo, Junior Fire Department Advisors, Wally Brooks, and Lora Aigotti; and Junior Fire Department Volunteers, Dylan Quicano, Nick Vulpis, and Brendan Finely.  To local students, Jenna Joseph, Zaria Khan, Evelyn Viegas, and Angel Mathew.  As well as to Cheryl Fajardo, Zoultan Khan, and Smitha Lukose-Khan.
