The club recently contributed four $25 gift cards to Cub Scout Pack # 489 and collected food for the New Hyde Park Key Club and their respective Thanksgiving food drives. The club will also be sponsoring two youth groups; the New Hyde Park and Floral Park Key Clubs who will be collecting food, gift cards, clothes and toys for the holiday season for 26 families through the Adopt-A-Family program. The schools themselves will also be participating through each department’s sponsorship of a family provided by the Nassau County Department of Social Services.
