Nassau County Legislature Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello (3rd from R) recently presented a citation to Sydney Silvia to recognize her efforts in coordinating a virtual food drive on behalf of Island Harvest. Thanks to the Manhasset High School Junior’s efforts, the drive collected more than 2,000 lbs. of food that will yield over 1,500 meals to those in the community dealing with food insecurity.
“It gave me great pleasure to support this worthwhile and important endeavor and I extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to Sydney for her commitment to this cause and for her continued work in helping those less fortunate, Nicolello said.” I also want to thank those who made the donations that allowed this food drive to far exceed its goal.”
Shown with Legislator Nicolello (from L to R) are: Island Harvest Volunteer and Community Relations Coordinator Shannon Karafian, Manhasset High School Principal Dr. Dean Schlanger, Sydney Silvia, Manhasset Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Vincent Butera and Manhasset Public Schools Deputy Superintendent Rosemary Johnson.
