Legislator Drucker, Sid Jacobson JCC “Shine a Light on Hunger”
Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D-Plainview) joined with his colleagues in government and leaders of the Sid Jacobson JCC on December 15 to “Shine a Light on Hunger” and spotlight young leaders in the fight to end food insecurity.
The event is an outgrowth of the Sid Jacobson JCC’s advocacy on this issue — one that impacts more than 41 million people in the United States. In partnership with Island Harvest, the Sid Jacobson JCC’s Community Needs Bank serves as a collection site and distribution center of non-perishable and perishable foods, personal care items, and household items for individuals and small local food pantries in Nassau County. The facility is also a dedicated vocational training site for young adults with special needs.
“At a time when every Nassau County resident is grappling with increasing expenses, the Sid Jacobson JCC’s commitment to fighting hunger is more important than ever, and it is heartwarming to see that they are instilling the importance of this mission in our next generation of leaders,” Legislator Drucker said. “Congratulations to all of the young ‘Ray of Light’ honorees, each of whom has made our community stronger and more compassionate through their hard work!”
