WOWI runs two food drives a year, one at Stop & Shop Supermarket and the other at the West Islip Public Library.
At Stop & Shop, we have volunteers who sit outside the doors and ask shoppers to donate whatever non perishable food items they may have to share.
At the Library, we have a large bin, where neighbors bring in non perishable food items and place them inside the bin during July and August.
We then deliver these collected items to Local Food Pantries throughout West Islip. Please support our upcoming food drive at the Library, there are many more in need than you would ever imagine! Thank you.
The most recent Autumn food drive was held on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at the Union Boulevard Stop and Shop Supermarket. Attending the event were WOWI members Regina Jacoby, Annie Bos Greene, Carol Marino, and Mary Louise Cairo.
