The Donald and Barbara Zucker Family Foundation recently donated $10,000 to the Town of Riverhead to help with food shortages, which was used to purchase needed food items for local pantries.

Congressman Lee Zeldin, a member of the bipartisan White House Opening Up America Again Congressional Group and Congressional Coronavirus Task Force, partnered with Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo; Riverhead Supervisor Yvette Aguiar; Town Board members Jodi Giglio, Frank Beyrodt, and Catherine Kent; staff; and volunteers to distribute the food to six local pantries April 30.

“So many incredible organizations have stepped up to help Long Islanders in need, and this generous donation by the Donald and Barbara Zucker Family Foundation will go a long way in helping feed and otherwise sustain Riverhead residents in need of a little extra help,” Zeldin said. “The only way we will emerge on the other side of this outbreak is by working together. Long Islanders and every level of their government continue to lead the way.”
