We have collected a little over $1,200 compared to last year’s total $1,200 for our Holiday Greeting Fund. So, we are so close to exceeding that amount. Each year we donate to the Greater Sayville Food Pantry, a deserving cause. They serve over 200 families throughout the year and are in desperate need during the colder winter months. If you would like to help us meet our donation goal and also support our local food pantry, and essentially, your neighbors, please make checks payable to The Holiday Greeting Fund and mail them to The Suffolk County News, 20 Medford Avenue, Patchogue, NY 11772. Also, you can donate by calling us at 631-475-1000 with a debit or credit card over the phone. Don’t forget to include your personalized greeting that will be featured in the paper on the editorial page, weekly throughout the season. However much we collect will be presented to the pantry come the New Year and featured on a future front-page announcement. Thank you for your consideration Happy New Year!
