This information is especially helpful. There are many people in need and not just during the holiday season but year round.

Glad you liked my photo - I don't know if you attended the event, but that's what the Westhampton Food Pantry shelves looked like after the Fundraiser Dinner on Oct 22. The Knights of Columbus, Westhampton Kiwanis and Westhampton Rotary collaborate every year on this event and the community responds with tremendous generosity. Beth Flanagan
