The Glen Cove Youth Bureau kicked off its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive at SoccerFest last weekend. SoccerFest families generously donated Thanksgiving staples to the annual drive. Each year, the Youth Bureau provides Thanksgiving dinner to more than 100 families in Glen Cove. The Youth Bureau will continue to collect donations through Nov. 22.
In addition to Thanksgiving staples, the Bureau also accepts cash donations and gift cards to local supermarkets, the proceeds of which are used to cover shortfalls and purchase meat for the families. Frozen turkeys are also accepted during the week of Nov. 18.
