Danny Ruscillo, Board members and food drive volunteers from the 100th Precinct Community Council collected an abundance of goods for St. Rose of Lima. On Saturday, October 5th, volunteers handed shoppers a note as they entered the Waldbaum’s off Beach Channel Drive in Rockaway Park.

“While Shopping Today Please Pick Up Some Non-Perishable Food Items For The 100th Precinct Community Council In Order That We Can Help Out Saint Rose of Lima.”

Grocery shoppers responded by donating an overwhelming amount of food, cash and store gift certificates. At least one person went into the store, bought a bag of groceries and promptly dropped it off on the way out. The drive collected from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“I want to thank everyone who donated,” Precinct Council President Danny Ruscillo said. “We collected over nine wagons of food. All food was delivered today to St. Rose of Lima in Rockaway Beach.”

“For all who could not make this food drive our Council will be hosting another next month. The location time and place to be determined and the information will be sent out in advance.”
