To support Island Harvest’s mission to assist emergency food programs all across Long Island and to meet the needs of more than 93,000 children and even more adults and seniors, Molloy Transit has joined with Long Island Radio Group and Waldbaum’s to support a unique two-day food drive.Molloy Moving & Storage Island Harvest Fundraiser

The program will be part of Island Harvest’s Turkey and Trimmings Collection Campaign. The Stuff the Mayflower Food Drive will take place November 9-10 at the Waldbaum’s location on Route 110 in Melville, New York at 890 Walt Whitman Road and one half-mile north of the Northern State Parkway on the eastern side.

The goal of this event is to fill one large Mayflower truck with thousands of pounds of food donated by individuals and local businesses. After the drive, all food will be distributed to Island Harvest’s network of member agencies throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

Businesses and individuals can help by placing a food collection bin in their place of business prior to the event and collecting non-perishable foods. Businesses interested in participating need to complete a simple participation form and if needed a collection bin will be provided. For information, contact Colin or Jennifer at (516) 775-0435 ext. 3.

Donations can be dropped off on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Waldbaum’s parking lot in Melville, NY. Pickup arrangements can be made if necessary. Individuals and families are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items directly to the collection site.

“Because Molloy is an agent of Mayflower Transit, we thought the connection between the Mayflower name and the Thanksgiving holiday would help us attract support for this event and draw attention to the need to fight hunger here on Long Island,” said Jim Molloy, president of Molloy

Molloy Moving & Storage has a long history of community involvement. The company regularly donates warehouse space, furniture, trucks and time to a variety of Long Island charities and not-for-profit organizations.
