Last week, Deposits for Food (D4F) presented checks to Heart, Love & Soul and Community Missions totaling $2,000. The funds were obtained from the collection of returnable containers and scrap metal over the past few weeks. The donation is in recognition of the Christmas season and those in need during this difficult time.
D4F founder and administrator Angelo Sarkees of Lewiston would like to thank everyone who has supported his efforts over the years. Businesses who have provided scrap metal include Collision Enterprises, the Brickyard Pub & BBQ/Brickyard Brewing Company, Lewiston Entertainment Center/Stone House, Griffon Pub, Carmelo's, DiMino's Tops Lewiston, Gather/Gallo Restaurant and Guido's Upholstering. Sarkees would also like to thank all the individuals who have donated bottles, cans and scrap over the years. A special thank you to Doug Adamson and his staff at Porter Empty Return Center in Ransomville, where the returnables are processed.
Sarkees would like to encourage everyone to support the pantries and shelters in WNY, especially during these times and during the upcoming holiday season. Finally, a heartfelt thanks to the pantries/shelters and their staff, for their dedication and efforts year-round.
