The Alliance group serves approximately 100 local residents and families to supplement the Mercy Inn Soup Kitchen.
Uniondale, NY - October 17, 2018 - Volunteers from PSEG Long Island’s Employee Business Resource Group (EBRG), The Alliance, recently hosted its monthly "Pasta Saturday" at the Trinity Lutheran Church of Wyandanch.
Every fifth Saturday since 2016, the Alliance group sets up, prepares and serves approximately 100 local residents and families to supplement the Mercy Inn Soup Kitchen, which feeds people Monday through Friday.
“We do it all, from food donations to clean up,” said Renee Crespi, PSEG Long Island employee and member of The Alliance. “We also pack ‘to-go’ meals for each guest to take with them.”
“There’s no better feeling than giving back to the communities where we live and work,” said Gregory Nichols, president PSEG Long Island’s The Alliance. “We’ve been doing this for a number of years, so you get to know many of the people who attend the dinner. That makes it especially rewarding.”
A successful program takes commitment, efficiency, collaboration and enthusiasm,” said Jacqueline Deville, president, Trinity Lutheran Church Council. “These are characteristics displayed by the PSEG Long Island volunteer group. They show up and show out every fifth Saturday of the month. Relationships have been developed over the years, giving our patrons a sense of security. Trinity Lutheran Church looks forward to maintaining our partnership with PSEG Long Island for many years to come.”
