When the Pelham Community Relief Team put out a community call for donated Thanksgiving dishes, the response was overwhelming and positive. The group will bring cooked dinners to the Howard Beach and Broad Channel communities they've been helping for several weeks now.
Two local businesses- DeCicco's and Depot Market of Pelham- have also answered the call. They are making it even easier for members of the community to donate the cooked dishes that PCRT will take to Hurricane Sandy victims on Thanksgiving Day.
Both DeCicco's, 43 Fifth Ave, and Depot Market, 146 Fifth Ave, will use their own kitchens to prepare donated food.
- If you want to place an order or make a monetary donation towards the prepared meals, you can stop by DeCicco's on Fifth Ave in Pelham, send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Frank or Keith at (914) 738-1377.
- To reach Depot Market, call 738-1817 or email email@example.com. They will have your order ready for pickup Thanksgiving morning.
Relief Team volunteers will pickup donated food at both locations Thursday morning. You can also drop off prepared dishes to Huguenot Memorial Church Thursday morning between 8 -9:30 a.m.
If you'd like to donate a dish for 12 in a tightly covered aluminum container, contact McClellan Realty/Sona Davidian or Lisa Kiernan with the food items you plan to donate AND the number of servings- Sona.firstname.lastname@example.org, or call(McClellan Realty) 914-738-5150 or (Lisa) 914-738-2328 - to find out what is still needed.
Cash donations and checks are also accepted. Checks should be made to Huguenot Church-Pelham Community Relief. Financial contributions will cover costs for food, supplies, items needed by hurricane victims.
