Thanksgiving Food Drive a Success!

Posted on November 25th, 2009


With the approach of the Thanksgiving Holiday, the members of the Fiorello LaGuardia Republican Organization, with offices located at 8024 17th Avenue, collected food for the less fortunate people of our community. The food was donated to the Reaching Out Community Services Inc. Food Pantry Program, located at 7708 New Utrecht Avenue, Brooklyn N.Y. 11214 which will be distributed by the hard-working volunteers of the organization.

Under the guidance of Tom Neve, Reaching Out Inc. provides much needed services for low income individuals and families in our area. Reaching Out Inc. operates a Supermarket Style Food Pantry, and helps its clients to file for food stamps, social security and housing. They supply a clothing room for those who are in need of clothing. Reaching Out also provides classes on Nutrition, Free Income Tax Assistance, Summer Tutoring Classes, Operation Gobbler, as well as the Operation Christmas Smiles program and more.

“This non-profit, charitable, community service organization, deserves the support and assistance of all community members and all elected officials regardless of their Party affiliation.” stated Lucretia Regina-Potter, Republican District Leader of the 49th Assembly District. “Hunger is an evil on society that applies to all its members, independently of their political or ideological beliefs,” she continued. “During my visit at the headquarters of Reaching Out Inc., I was pleased to see the dedication of the many volunteers who were assisting the people who were lining up to receive much needed food for Thanksgiving.”
