To the editor:

The Community Action Southold Town board of directors mourns the recent loss of two individuals who worked hard to promote the mission of CAST and helped so many in our community.

Phyllis Atkins, CAST food pantry supervisor, worked at CAST for over 13 years and ran the food pantry. Phyllis’ job extended far beyond the food pantry, as she touched and helped everyone she came in contact with.

Alison Hegeman, CAST board member for seven years, truly fought for those who were struggling to make ends meet for their families.

CAST was fortunate to have Phyllis and Alison working so hard for those in need. They are missed terribly and will certainly not be forgotten.

Dennis Noncarrow, Greenport

president, CAST
