The Ladies Auxiliary of the Halesite Fire Department is once again collecting donations of canned food, non-perishables, and toiletries to help support the Family Service League. Located on Park Avenue in Huntington, The Family Service League has been helping the less fortunate of Long Island for over 85 years. They accept donations year round and re-distribute those items to families in need in the Halesite and Huntington community.
It's hard to imagine that an affluent area like ours would have families that need help, but 1 in 4 adults on Long Island are "food insecure." This means they are regularly choosing between paying bills or buying food for their families. In the Huntington area there are more than 3,000 families who receive the benefits of donated food from the Family Service League. These are often hard-working adults, children, and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.
We will be collecting your donations at the firehouse from now through December 21st. When you walk in the front lobby, there will a drop box for all donations. This time of year, donations of food are especially welcomed, as the recipients will be celebrating the holidays as well. Any donation you can make will be appreciated.
Thank You for Your Continued Support!
Chief of Department
