Legislator McCaffrey Hosts Food Drive

Legislator McCaffrey with Food Drive Donors and Volunteers

Babylon, NY: On Saturday, February 27th, 2021, Suffolk County Legislator Kevin McCaffrey hosted an Island Harvest Food Drive at the Babylon Railroad Station along with New York State Assemblyman Michael Durso.

The kindness of the residents of Babylon Village and its surrounding communities proved to be a bright spot in what was otherwise a dark and rainy Saturday afternoon, as dozens of cars lined up to donate nonperishable food items for their neighbors in need. The logistical side of the food drive was made possible by volunteers from Island Harvest, the offices of Legislator McCaffery and Assemblyman Durso, Babylon Village Mayor Mary Adams and Trustees Anthony Cardali, Dominic Bencivenga, and Frank Seibert, Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer, and most importantly the Suffolk County Police Department's First Precinct Explorers. Their hard work certainly paid off, as donations filled several pallets and the entire Island Harvest Truck on site.

Island Harvest Food Bank is a leading hunger-relief organization that provides food and other resources to people in need. Always treating those it helps with dignity and respect, its goal is to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island through efficient food collection and distribution; enhanced hunger-awareness and nutrition-education programs. For more information on their work, visit: Island Harvest.

Legislator McCaffrey represents Suffolk County’s 14th Legislative District which encompasses the Village of Lindenhurst, Babylon Village, the hamlets of West Babylon and North Lindenhurst, portions of Copiague, North Babylon and Babylon’s barrier beach communities.
