THANK YOU NOTE

Thursday, December 17, 2009 Staten Island Advance

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Thank you, Met Food Markets, New Dorp High School students, Jimmy Max Restaurant, Lamonica Fine Foods and Where-to-Turn.

Some holiday generosity the food retailers and the public school pupils, all brought together through Dennis McKeon's nonprofit organization, has provided hundreds of meals for the less fortunate.

In late November, representatives from New Jersey-based Lamonica shipped 480 cans of clam sauce to Where-to-Turn, a donation for Staten Island's food pantries.

After being made aware of McKeon's hope of pairing the canned sauces with additional foodstuffs to create full meals, Met Foods representatives contacted Where-to-Turn.

Chief financial officer Michael J. Valenzo, a Todt Hill resident, presented the organization with 340 pounds of pasta at the chain's Castleton Corners location.

A few days later, students from New Dorp, at the request of principal Deirdre DeAngelis, helped to raise an additional 110 pounds of pasta during their annual Sing! event to put towards the contribution.

Upon learning that Where-to-Turn was still short of its goal by 30 pounds of pasta, Westerleigh restaurateur James McBratney agreed to contribute the rest.

Where-to-Turn combined the payloads of goods and dropped them off earlier this week at the borough's Project Hospitality sites. The pasta and sauce will be prepared in Project Hospitality kitchens and distributed to the needy.
