Helping 400 families for the holidays


The Albanian American Open Hand Association and the Pelham Parkway Neighborhood Association had their annual Holiday food giveaway on December 22, 2015.

It would have been impossible to help these families in need without the generous support of the following sponsors:

Martin Shapiro Reality

International Food Market Corp. of Lydig Ave

Sal Conforto

Tony Musaj & Family – Euro Fresh Produce

Bonavita – Key Food – Lydig Ave

Deli Mena Corp. Grocery – 775 Lydig Avenue

Pelham Parkway Vision Center – 735 Lydig Avenue

Good N Natural

Pre-K for All

La Pentola Italian Restaurant

Apple Bank for Savings – Pelham Parkway Branch

These generous donors made it possible to feed over 400 families for the holidays. Our Councilman James Vacca and our Assemblymen Mark Gjonaj generously donated toys to help put smiles on the faces of the kids.

We couldn’t have done this without the assistance of the many volunteers who generously gave of their time during the hectic holiday season, as well as the many media services that carried our story.

Please bear in mind that these sponsors have businesses on Lydig Avenue and when you go shopping please consider patronizing these shops. They are good to our Pelham Parkway community and we the residents of Pelham Parkway should be good to them.

Again, we thank you and God Bless.
