A New York state senator from the Hudson Valley Monday teamed up with a Rockland County non-profit organization to deliver Thanksgiving bags to families in need.
State Senator David Carlucci, an Independent Democrat, has for another Thanksgiving joined with Advocating For Change, a Spring Valley-based non-profit corporation that serves mainly African-American and Latino communities in Rockland County. Monday they delivered some 400 Thanksgiving bags, with turkey and the fixings for a holiday meal.
“So what we traditionally do is go to all the different schools in the East Ramapo School District and deliver these baskets right to these principals, and they know, really, the families in need,” says Carlucci. “Unfortunately, we’ve seen an increase in the demand just over the past few years.”
Carlucci was at the Chestnut Ridge Middle School.
