Addabbo Sponsors Food Drive

Council Member Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. announced that he will be sponsoring a food drive this holiday season through his two district offices. From Friday, November 8 to Monday, November 25, residents can drop off canned goods at either the Howard Beach or Rockaway office of the councilman.

"There are many needy people and I am trying to make their holiday a little more tolerable," said Addabbo.

People are being asked to deliver canned or non-perishable goods to either the Howard Beach office located at 159-53 102 Street, or the Rockaway office at 92-03 Rockaway Beach Boulevard.

The collected food goods will be distributed to area food shelters or charitable organizations to be delivered in time for the holidays.

"I am hopeful that my office’s collection box will be overflowing with food to be delivered to those who need it during this holiday season," stated Addabbo.

For any questions regarding the food drive, call either of the councilman’s offices at 738-1111 or 318-6411.
