Hunger is very real here in the Sayville area. The number of local residents experiencing difficulty affording food over the last year has steadily increased.
This number doubles during the holidays. The Greater Sayville Food Pantry offers help to those who need access to nutritional food. Many families we serve are faced with the daily dilemma of whether to eat or pay bills. They are the working poor who can’t seem to catch up on their bills, senior citizens on fixed incomes, and single parents who live from paycheck to paycheck.
Once again, The Sayville Food Pantry will be sponsoring a food drive during this year’s annual Holiday Parade and would greatly appreciate your help.
On Saturday, November 26th at 10:00 am, The Greater Sayville Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its Annual Holiday Parade and our Shopping Cart Elves will be collecting donations along the parade route.
Through the community participation, we can continue to help those who are in need in the Oakdale, Bohemia, West Sayville, Sayville, Bayport and Blue Point areas.
