A truckload of groceries was donated to families in Valley Stream Saturday – part of a slew of events across Long Island hosted by the nonprofit Hope Day Network.
At Wheeler Avenue Elementary School, families from Valley Stream and surrounding communities were given a free hot lunch, groceries, toys and health services.
“We’re just better together and we wanted to treat people with dignity, respect and with love and share hope with them,” said the Rev. Steven Milazzo, president and founder of Hope Day Network. The nonprofit started in 2012.
“It’s important for the community. It’s something that’s needed in the community,” said Ashley McCall, of Baldwin.
The national humanitarian organization, Convoy of Hope, also assists the Hope Day Network with giving items to families.
