The Rockaway Irish Boys and the Graybeards gather in front of the St. Mary’s Star of the Sea rectory in Far Rockaway to celebrate their successful food drive. The Graybeards and RIBs (Rockaway Irish Boys) Foundation recently hosted their very successful 9th Annual Food Drive.

Within the past nine years they have collected close to one million pounds of food for people in need.

The non-perishable food is given to parishes across Far Rockaway and helps to fill their food pantries throughout the winter.

Both organizations offered their thanks to everyone who donated food. They also advise that they are working towards being better and even more efficient in the new year, to make sure that every household in need gets a bag of groceries on their doorstep.
