Help the local community and donate non-perishable food items or monetary donations to the Wading Riverhead Fire Department Fire Headquarters, 1503 North Country Road in Wading River, through New Year’s Day.

Similar to last year, COVID-19 restrictions have caused the donation location to shift from the Wading River King Kullen supermarket to the fire department’s headquarters.

The food drive will benefit food pantries of churches in Wading River, Shoreham and Rocky Point. Food will also be delivered directly to families when pantries are close to empty.

To arrange a pickup of donations if unable to drop-off, call (631)886-0122 and leave a message. Monetary donations will be used to purchase food in bulk.
