NYRA Thanks Floral Park Memorial High School for Clothing Drive to Benefit the Backstretch Community

NYRA wishes to thank the National Junior Honor Society of Floral Park Memorial High School for hosting a clothing drive for the backstretch community during their Homecoming Day festivities on October 20th.
Chaplain Humberto Chavez of the Race Track Chaplaincy of New York arrived at the high school with his van to collect over 75 bags of clothing! I was pleased to join him along with Floral Park Memorial High School Principal, Kathy Sotille, Floral Park Village Administrator, Patrick Farrell and Floral Park Village Trustee, Dominick Longobardi.
NYRA is delighted to work with this wonderful group of students who are planning a food drive for the winter and a book drive for the spring.
We thank them for a most impressive community outreach!
