"What a fulfilling day. I've been living here over 40 yrs and what I saw today was what Roosevelt Island was always about," said Disabled Association President Wendy Hersh in a Saturday Facebook Post. And there's more to come. Free food distribution starts on Monday at PS/IS 217.

Roosevelt Islanders Coordinate Distribution of Hundreds of Food Bags

"The Disabled Association, Mosaic Church and the Carter Burden Network banded together with the assistance of Frank Farance and the CERT team along with many volunteers who we were so grateful for to distribute over 100 each of both produce and food bags...

"We were so blessed by the Dream Center who provided these wonderful food bags for us to give out. So proud to be a part of this community."

Hersh also noted that L+M Management and manager Doryne Isley generously donated space for the groups coordinating food distribution.
