Centereach, NY - November 20, 2014 - With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, JVC Broadcasting and its roster of four Long Island radio stations is once again hosting their annual "Stuff-A-Truck" food drive to support Long Island Cares, Inc.-The Harry Chapin Food Bank and Brookhaven Interface. This year's two-day event will be held on Saturday, November 22 and Sunday, November 23 at the Café Figaro's parking lot in the Walmart shopping center in Centereach from 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM.
All four radio stations including My Country 96.1, Party 105, LI News Radio and La Fiesta will join together in the battle to fight hunger here on Long Island. This year, JVC Broadcasting hopes to beat last year's total of 26,000 pounds of food collected at the "Stuff-A-Truck" event.
"The Thanksgiving holiday always brings a heightened concern for those who are hungry and food insecure," said Elana Sissons, Manager of Community Support and Food Drives for Long Island Cares.
"This year, we need to call attention to the growing need for emergency food on Long Island to help our neighbors in need, especially children, disabled veterans and the homebound elderly who are struggling, along with many of the more than eight percent of Long Islanders that are unemployed and counting on many charitable organizations for assistance during the holidays and throughout the year," said Paule Pachter, Chief Executive Officer.
"While many of us are very fortunate, many of the people in our community are in need of assistance," said Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine. "They could be strangers, or our next door neighbors. I urge everyone to donate whatever they can to help make the holidays a happier time for all. By doing our part we can make a big difference and I thank JVC Broadcasting, Long Island Cares and our own INTERFACE program for their year round efforts to help those who are less fortunate."
