Jefferson’s Ferry Collects and Delivers Food to Island Harvest Food Bank



During the first two weeks of March, Jefferson’s Ferry Life Plan Community residents and staff held a “Stuff a Bus” food drive, collecting 527 pounds of non-perishable items which were then delivered to Island Harvest Food Bank for distribution. The group effort was part of the Jefferson’s Ferry Foundation’s community outreach efforts to support Long Islanders in need.

Jefferson’s Ferry residents shopped for items on Island Harvest’s “wish list” at their community’s Country Store, which had been specially stocked for the food drive by resident Jan Parker, so that her Jefferson’s Ferry neighbors could shop while staying close to home.
