“As one of the largest and most recognizable franchises on Long Island, we greatly appreciate McDonald’s participation in our Turkey and Trimmings Collection Campaign,” said Randi Shubin Dresner, president and CEO of Island Harvest. “With this expanded reach and visibility, Island Harvest will be able to provide more families with a nutritious holiday meal.”
More than 300,000 Long Islanders — 110,000 of them children — face the risk of going hungry each year, according to Island Harvest.
Non-perishable food items will be collected through Dec. 30. McDonald's in East Meadow is located at 2361 Hempstead Turnpike.
“The Long Island McDonald’s owner/operators are proud to once again support Island Harvest in their mission to provide meals for people in need this holiday season,” said Mike Daggett, president, Long Island McDonald’s Owner and Operators Association.
