Amityville, NY - February 3, 2014 - Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory sponsored a food drive at Amityville Stop and Shop to benefit Island Harvest Saturday. Girls from Amityville Girl Scout Troop 338 came out in force to collect over 800 pounds of food. 
“I am amazed by the spirit of enthusiasm of these young ladies,” said Presiding Officer Gregory. “With smiling faces, warm hearts and cold hands they are happy to help out for a good cause. I have to thank Stop and Shop for hosting the event and the residents of the 15th Legislative District for their overwhelming generosity. It is heartwarming to see so many of our neighbors donating to those in need. I couldn’t be more proud.” 
Under the supervision of Girl Scout Service Unit 19 Leader Michele Camilleri, several Brownies and Daisies aged 5-1/2 to 8 together with their parents took part in the community service event with Presiding Officer Gregory, taking turns greeting shoppers and organizing donated items.
