Crystorama Lighting Team Conducts Food Drive for Island Harvest
Westbury, N.Y.-based Crystorama conducted a food drive this month on behalf of Island Harvest, a local relief organization. “With Thanksgiving and the holidays right around the corner, our company’s team wanted to do something special to help out individuals and families in our community who are struggling to put food on the table,” says Brad Kleinberg, President of Crystorama Lighting. “More than 316,000 Long Islanders — adults and children — face the risk of hunger every day. Long Island is our home, and we want to do all we can to help our less-fortunate neighbors during their time of need.”
As part of the food drive, Crystorama’s employees donated a wide range of canned and packaged foods, including vegetables, soup, and pasta. The food was delivered to Island Harvest’s headquarters in Bethpage.
Approximately 70,000 individuals seek food assistance in Nassau and Suffolk counties each week through soup kitchens, food pantries, and other feeding programs served by Island Harvest Food Bank. The organization delivers millions of pounds of food each year to a network of 570 Long Island-based food pantries, soup kitchens, and other non-profit organizations that offer feeding services for those in need.
