The struggling Harrison Food Pantry just received a $1,500 shot in the arm from a pair of generous Harrison families.
With the slow summer season 's already stretched resources, the pantry was struggling to support the more than 100 families who need it to provide for their families.
Patch was told this week that the pantry now struggles to buy even cans of soup and relies on hot dogs and other inexpensive meats to feed families.
This week, however, the Postiglione and Batavick families did their part to chip in. The families made donations totaling $1,500, which was officially accepted at Thursday night's town council meeting. The Postiglione donation was made in memory of Theresa and Peter Postiglione.
Although town officials asked for more of the public's support for the food pantry at the meeting, they said the generous donations will go a long way in helping the growing number of Harrison families in need.
