PELHAM, N.Y. -- May is "Food Drive Month," and Siwanoy Elementary School partnered with County Harvest, Inc. to help the cause by organizing a collection of non-perishable goods for the hungry.
The donations were delivered to West HELP in Mount Vernon. West HELP is a housing facility for formerly homeless families. This residence provides a broad range of services including day care on-site and Food Pantry access.
Student government reps from the Siwanoy fifth-grade loaded more than 300 pounds of food into the County Harvest vans, which went directly to West HELP.
