[ARCHIVED] Lafazan Partners w/ Community Leaders to Host Food Drive at The Village Church in Bayville

Legislator Joshua Lafazan Partners with Community Leaders to Host Food Drive & Distribution at The Village Church in Bayville 

WHAT: To address an increase in food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic, Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan (Woodbury) is partnering with community leaders to host a food drive and distribution event at The Village Church in Bayville on Saturday, Sept. 5. The food drive will occur from 9 - 11 a.m., with the distribution event to immediately follow from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. All food donations will benefit local residents.

“The loss of jobs with the onset of COVID-19 resulted in many families being ‘short on cash’ for even the simplest of food items. The Bayville/Locust Valley community came together and in their typical spirit of generosity and kindness helped their neighbors in need,” Madeleine Petrara Perrin, who is helping to organize the drive, said. “This is what our community is all about!”

“While regional economic conditions are showing signs of slow, steady improvement, the COVID-19 pandemic has placed tremendous pressure on many local families,” Legislator Lafazan said. “With your support, I am confident that this community-powered food drive will make a positive impact and connect families with vital support during these extraordinary times.”
