In the spirit of giving this Christmas season, Long Island Lutheran Middle and High School was pleased to be the recipient of sports memorabilia from local businessman Jack Britvan of Commercial Realty Services of Long Island, Inc., located in Woodbury. These items will be auctioned off to raise funds for the school’s second annual Haiti Meal Packing Event.
This is the second year Long Island Lutheran High School is organizing/hosting this event on their Brookville campus. The event is open to all churches, religious denominations, youth groups, community organizations, schools business, scouting or other groups, family or persons who want to participate. The goal is to pack 200,000 food packets, enough to feed 500 Haitian children every day for a year. In addition, ten percent of the food packets will go to local food pantries on Long Island. Past participants were excited to pack 300,672 meals in 2011, and the school is grateful for Britvan’s donation to help them raise funds for packing supplies for the 2012 event.
