Stony Brook Chapter mounts successful food drive


UUP Stony Brook Chapter President Arty Shertzer, third from right, and Nancy Gaugler, right, chair of the chapter’s Community Services Committee, stand behind the more than 2,450 pounds of food collected during the chapter’s October food drive. Fellow UUPer Mark Woodruff, third from left, Stony Brook’s assistant director of facilities and services, is also pictured.

Employees and students from both Stony Brook and Stony Brook HSC contributed non-perishable food items in an amount that doubled the total collected the year before. The idea of the food drive came from UUP’s Community Services Committee. Its proceeds went to Long Island Cares, the Harry Chapin Food Bank, an organization providing nutritional food and support services to more than 540 community-based agencies including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and child care programs.

“Hunger is more prevalent on Long Island than ever before,” Gaugler said. “Where we see a need, we want to try to help, and Long Island Cares is one of the region’s most comprehensive hunger organizations.”
