Lighthouse Mission food pantry goes mobile
One of the Island's busiest soup kitchens, the Lighthouse Mission, hit the road this year to hand out Thanksgiving meal fixings to the needy.
The Bellport-based mission took its truck filled with holiday goods to stops in Wyandanch and Central Islip Wednesday. More than 200 people turned out to wait in line.
When the truck stopped in Amityville on Monday, there were more people than turkeys. Those who left empty handed were the first ones in line Wednesday.
Volunteers who helped hand out the ingredients said they were more than glad to help.
