Amsterdam Food Drive Feeds Families


Amsterdam010616AAmsterdam residents participated in donating funds to the 26th Annual “Thanksgiving Basket Brigade Food Drive” of the North Shore, which services families associated with the Boys and Girls Club of Glen Cove. There were 50 families slated to receive food but Amsterdam residents raised $420, which allowed the list to be expanded to an additional 16 families that received complete Thanksgiving meals including a frozen turkey, pie and all of the trimmings, including extra pantry items.

Community programs manager Tracy Warzer purchased the food items and baskets. All of the food baskets and turkeys were delivered directly to the families in need in time for Thanksgiving. Residents who donated are pictured, from left: Ida Markezin, Janet Lombard, Gerry Mulligan, Jan Mueller, Miriam Stern, Mike Collins, Malcah Toor, Sylvia Dunsky, Karen Regan, Cynthia Kaufman, Joan Flanagan and Tracy Warzer. Residents not pictured, but who also donated are: Ellie Irish, Ilse Moss and LIU Post intern Eva Schmalzer.
