Rosemary McGoey’s fifth-grade class at Our Lady of Mercy Regional School in Cutchogue organized a food drive this month, beating its 500-item goal by over 170 items. Students carried bags of food out to the school’s parking lot, where Loretta Hatzel-Geraci, the director of North Fork Parish Outreach in Greenport, piled them into her car Thursday.

“It looks like there will be enough food this Thanksgiving for needy families,” Ms. Hatzel-Geraci said about the bags of donated food. “This is wonderful.”

For more information about donating food, visit the North Fork Parish Outreach at 69465 Main Road or call (631) 477-6607.
