Yonkers, NY — On Wednesday, August 19, and Thursday, August 20, the Westchester County government is hosting at two-day food drive to help fight hunger. The donated items will be distributed through 181 local organizations, like soup kitchens, shelters and food pantries by the Food Bank of Westchester.
"I am happy to open up my office as a center for donation from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on those days. My district office is located at:
35 E. Grassy Sprain Rd., 406B
Hudson Valley Bank Bldg, 4th Floor
Yonkers, NY 10710
(Corner of Tuckahoe Road and E. Grassy Sprain)," said Assemblyman Mike Spano.
The number of households requiring assistance has gone up 15% in the past year. Additionally, the summer months have proven to be the months of least contributions to food pantries and soup kitchens. That being said, I am urging those who can to donate canned and non-perishable food items to this great cause!
