Dear Residents of Flower Hill,
2020 has certainly been an unprecedented year. While many of our village residents have been affected, thankfully the majority have been able to keep the lights on and keep food on their tables. For others, that is not always the case – which is why we have established the Flower Hill Food Drive.
With a helping hand from local groups and other community volunteers, the Flower Hill Food drive will support families in our area who are in need. All contributions will be donated to local food pantries (currently JCC of Roslyn and Our Lady of Fatima in Manorhaven).
How can you help? We have set up two drop-off locations and we are asking you, the generous residents of Flower Hill, for your help. If you wish to donate, please email FHfooddrive@gmail.com and we will arrange a safe and socially distant pick-up. In addition, you can drop items off at Village Hall between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm) or at the residences of either of the Co-Chairs (to be arranged via email):
