The generosity of six charitable people, families or organizations will help stock the shelves of Harrison's food pantry this spring.
Harrison Director of Community Services Nina Marraccini officially accepted $3,150 in donations at Harrison's most recent town board meeting. An anonymous donor chipped in $2,000, while local families or organizations contributed the rest.
One donation—$100 from Nan Cramer—was donated in memory of Nina Marraccini Sr., who passed away earlier this spring.
Other donations included:
- $518 from the Harrison Basketball Booster Club
- $200 from the Lions Club of Harrison
- $300 from Joseph and Diana Minishi
- $40 from St. Gregory's CYO Basketball
All of the donations will go toward providing food and other assisstance for about 100 struggling Harrison families who rely on the food pantry for support.
