The Glen Cove Youth Bureau kicked off the spring season by holding a food drive at Stop and Shop and King Kullen. The students collected hundreds of nonperishable food items, fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs and cash donations for the Youth Bureau’s Food Pantry. Armed with lists of items needed by the pantry, the students gave the lists to shoppers as they entered the stores.
Other students gratefully collected the donations as the shoppers exited the stores. All of the donations were used to feed the needy in Glen Cove. The drive would not have been possible without the support of Stop and Shop and King Kullen for allowing the students to solicit outside the stores and the many generous shoppers who willingly added some extra items to their shopping baskets.
