Makers Nutrition and Long Island Cares Working Toward a Happy Thanksgiving for the Community

This year, Makers Nutrition wanted to make an impact for Long Islanders whose Thanksgiving was in jeopardy. Playing its part in making a difference amidst the continued fight against COVID-19, the team donated over $500 worth of turkeys in addition to holding a food drive that collected approximately 1,000 lbs. of Thanksgiving dinner staples for local families in need. Looking to make an impact as well ShopRite kicked in a $25 gift card to help even more people this holiday.

Long Island Cares, Inc. - The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank continues to implement a number of actions to assist the community during the coronavirus pandemic. In response to the increasing demand for basic necessities for our neighbors in need, Long Island Cares has partnered with local governments and individual donors to establish multiple emergency temporary distribution centers located in Baldwin, Uniondale, Long Beach, Levittown, Bellmore, 5 Towns, Oceanside, Hempstead, Elmont, Brierley Park, Valley Stream, and Stony Brook. Long Island Cares operates six additional permanent emergency food distribution sites throughout Long Island to help the nearly 300,000 Long Islanders experiencing food insecurity and hunger.

“Having donated to Long Island Cares in the past and having raised a significant amount of money for people in need around the globe during the height of the pandemic, we knew our team could truly impact the lives of many this Thanksgiving,” said Director of Business Development Robert Driscoll. “As a vitamin and dietary supplement manufacturing company, we know how important nutrition is, and how fragile some situations can be. That is why we collected approximately 1,000 lbs. of food items and donated over $500-worth of turkeys—to ensure that as many families’ tables are filled with food, surrounded by friends and family as many people reunite this year.”

Makers Nutrition is very proud to be working with Long Island Cares, an organization that does such amazing work for so many fellow Long Islanders, not just around the holidays, but year-round.
