Families of the Five Towns Early Learning Center and Community Center were invited to a free family pancake breakfast hosted by the Five Towns Applebee’s located on Rockaway Turnpike. The 150 meals are courtesy of the Dime Bank, a handful of generous families who contributed $200-$250 and dozens of sponsors who gifted $10 to $100. The Community Chest youth board, Hewlett and Lawrence High School students, learned about the inner workings of a commercial kitchen as they helped meet, seat, distribute, serve and bus the tables throughout the morning as they earned community service. The event’s proceeds, which surpassed the $1200 goal, will proudly purchase new classroom equipment for the Five Towns Early Learning Center. Wow, what a win. It was smiles all around as Applebee’s, our sponsors and volunteers all gave their time and energy to produce a memorable morning for local families while raising funds to improve the center’s facility. We thank all involved and our elected officials, Judge Darcy, NY State Assemblyman Todd Kaminsky, Nassau County Legislator Carrie Solages and Town of Hempstead Councilman Bruce Blakeman for stopping by. Well done.
