The Teen Task Force will be collecting food and clothing through November 28.  We also need teen volunteers to help sort donations on November 29, 30 and December from 4 – 8 pm.  The distribution will take place at United Method Baptist Church in White Plains on Saturday, December 2, from 1 – 5:00 p.m.

 

The Town of Greenburgh Teen Task Force is a group of teens in who perform acts of Community Service.  Core members of the group include Bridging Dots, GOOD for Girls, the NAACP, the Girl Scouts, The Greenburgh Public Library, the TDY Community Center and the Hartsdale Greenburgh Rotary.

 

Since our inception two years ago, we’ve raised over $20,000 to combat food insecurity in our community.  We’ve supported local food relief programs such as Feeding Westchester and the Food Pantry at the Greenburgh Health Center, and we’ve built a community garden at the Community Center dedicated to growing fresh fruit and vegetables and being a venue for community gatherings.  We’ve also supported education programs for growing healthy foods and addressing issues of physical and mental health.

 

For more information on the food and clothing drive, or to find out how YOU can become involved with the Teen Task Force, please email eanastasi@greenburghlibrary.org.  School credit for community service hours is available.

 

Please join us in helping improve the lives of children and families in our community. Our teens are amazing--doing good for the less fortunate. We are so lucky to have them in our community.   PAUL FEINER
