    Community Food Drive Helps Families

    As part of a community service project, Paige Ekert, a student at Shoreham-Wading River High School, organized and donated over 60 bags of non-perishable food items to the Eastern Suffolk BOCES (ESBOCES) Sayville Academic Center (SAC) food pantry.

    The food pantry was created two years ago at SAC and currently supports 23 families.

    Paige has a special place in her heart for the families at ESBOCES and SAC; her aunt Patricia Richards is a special education teacher at SAC and her grandmother, now retired, worked as a data control specialist for ESBOCES.

    Special Education Aide Linda O’Connor, a staff member who manages the food pantry, said, “We are very grateful to Paige for this generous contribution.”

    Pictured with the 60 bags of non-perishable food are Patti Richards, Marsha Ekert, Paige Ekert, Michelle Carpenter, Trey Ekert, Jake Ekert, and Millie Ekert.
