CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Clarkstown is collecting food that will help make the holidays a little brighter for Rockland families in need, said Supervisor George Hoehmann.
Donated items will be given to People to People of Rockland, which operates a food pantry on West Nyack Road in Nanuet.
The drop-off site, which will be open until Wednesday, is in the lobby of Town Hall, 10 Maple Ave., New City.
Hoehmann said among the items needed are instant mashed potatoes, instant stuffing, canned corn/string beans/sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and turkey gravy, Bisquick and cornbread mixes, pie crust mix and filling and canned or bagged nuts.
“While we are all preparing and food shopping for Thanksgiving, there are many in our community who need our help to put food on their tables,” Hoehmann said.
The supervisor encouraged anyone who could to donate food “to assist our neighbors in need, especially during this Thanksgiving season.”
