Our Lady of Victory (OLV) School families became aware of and responded to a need within their own parish when they began the program, Pantry Tuesdays, a food drive benefiting the OLV Church Pantry. Due to the overwhelming generosity of the OLV School families, this endeavor has proven to be a great success.
There are two more Pantry Tuesdays scheduled, on Nov. 4 and again on Nov. 18.

For as long as she could remember, Christina Amato-Smith has always wanted to open her own hair salon. The Floral Park native worked at a salon down the road from her home, but it wasn’t until 1994 when Amato-Smith made good on her promise to herself.
“I came to Bethpage to open my business because my clients were here,” said Amato-Smith who now lives in Lindenhurst and has owned Top Cuts for 20 years.While her business has been met with much success, in 2008, Amato-Smith’s personal life was met with a challenge when she was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. It was this event that prompted Top Cuts to organize a Cut-a-Thon to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. This year’s event occurs on Saturday, November 1.
