Organizations in western Queens are already benefiting from the annual Long Island City and Astoria Kiwanis Community Food Drive.
The Kiwanis Club of Long Island City and Astoria recently donated food to Quality Services for the Autism Community’s office in Astoria, and other organizations will be getting donations soon.
There is still time to bring in food donations for the Kiwanis Club as they will be accepting donations through the end of the year. Some of the items the club is looking to collect include non-perishables and canned foods such as corn, rice, cranberry sauce, yams and others.
