WS KIDS CARE:
WSKC has lots of great activities planned for the year – many tried and true events and a couple of new ideas. Let’s kick the year off right by filling up the West Side Food Pantry with healthy food to support the Tri-Community and Youth Agency’s after-school program in Huntington Station. See the attached flyer for more information about food donations and the opportunity to volunteer time at the TriCYA.
Annual Winter Coat Drive
Our Annual Coat Drive will start on October 16 and run through October 25. Please check your closets and share some warmth with others!! If anyone has any questions or ideas for WSKC events, please contact Dana Lynch at 631-385-0344 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Our annual Halloween Dance will be held on Friday November 1, 2013 from 5:30-7:00 PM. Please come dressed in your Halloween costume and bring a canned good donation for the Food Pantry.
