The holiday season is upon us, and if you’re looking for a way to give back to the community, head to Burke, where you can take part in the annual food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Westchester. This year’s goal? To donate 1,000 pounds of food to those in need.
The food drive is taking place now through December 21. Some of the most needed non-perishable items include beans, whole grain cereals, canned meat and fish, shelf stable milk, low-sodium canned meals, canned vegetables, canned or dried fruit, peanut butter, pasta and rice. Glass containers and pre-opened items cannot be accepted.
Drop-off locations for the food drive include the main hospital lobby of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital at 785 Mamaroneck Ave in White Plains and Burke’s outpatient clinics in the Bronx at 2826 Westchester Ave., in Mamaroneck at 703 West Boston Post Rd., in Purchase at 3020 Westchester Ave., in Somers at 325 Route 100, Suite. 106 and in Yonkers at 73 Market Place (1stfloor) in Ridge Hill.
