The Greater New Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce, through its Benevolence Committee, is conducting its first annual Holiday Food Drive.
In a year like no other in memory, the Chamber sought to help those experiencing unemployment, under-employment, or business closings. No one should have to choose between the necessities of life and not having enough to eat.
The Chamber made its first donation on Tuesday, November 24 to the food pantry at Notre Dame RC Church.
A second donation will be made on December 20 to the Trinity Lutheran Church.
