Food Drive Aids Local Veterans

To help local veterans in need, the Miller Avenue and Wading River schools have teamed up to hold a food drive as part of a Veterans of Foreign Wars and AARP of Riverhead initiative.

The food drive started on Sept. 23 and will run until Nov. 13. Thanks to the generosity of both school communities, several boxes have already been filled with nonperishable goods and toiletries.

All donations will be transferred to the Veterans of Foreign Wars and AARP and subsequently delivered directly to Long Island veterans who are in need.
