Each meal includes milk, a sandwich, coleslaw and snack. Mr. Distefano’s group has also set up two other feeding stations in Mastic Beach and Hauppauge.

“Things are going good,” he said Sunday about the volunteer effort. “We’ve got 6,600 meals in each location ready to go.”

Mr. Distefano said about 10 volunteers from the local community showed up Saturday after a bus of volunteers from the city didn’t arrive. He expects more to volunteers to help out today. There’s no dire need for more hands, but volunteers who show can help hand out food, freeing up Red Cross workers to drive to those in need who can’t make it to the center.

Red Cross volunteer Sandra Wilmore packed up the Red Cross truck Sunday morning to deliver meals to neighborhoods surrounding the Peconic Bay and said she would later deliver food to the Bay Shore area.

The county center is located at 210 Center Drive in Riverside. Hours for Sunday and Monday are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Such a sad existence for me when my just one a small rush of importance is ripping open junk mail. Bills can wait, so a real letter sounds excellent. Will subscribe.Cheers, Iris

  • This may possibly properly be the “most fabulous” and greatest ’57 Golden Hawk in captivity, but, let’s deal with it, the price is simply not realistic with this day and age of your economy downturn, etc.. I don’t possess a current copy of a reliable Old Cars Price Guide, mine is almost a 12 months previous, even so, very last November’s outlined a #1 price at $48,000! Unless a buyer arrives forward having a great deal of money and a total desire to own this car, at whatever charge, it’s going to not promote. Ideal bet could well be to consider it to some Big auction [Barrett/Jackson, etc.] and hope two rich bidders go into a warm bidding war about it and operate the price into the roof!!

  • David, you really don’t get copies in the previous letters. As being the letters go forward that number could be from the hundreds. But if there is a particular letter deliver us an email and perhaps we are able to figure a little something out.

  • I’m impressed, I have to say. Seriously rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve got hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the problem is some thing that not sufficient many people are speaking intelligently about. I am rather happy that I stumbled across this in my search for some thing relating to this.
