Giving back to the community is what Nanuet's all about. From a community-built playground to charitable local businesses.
Tomorrow, Saturday July 20, there are two fundraiser in Nanuet for local causes:
From 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., Lindsey Ferrante, Shauna McNamara and Olivia Nikac from Nanuet Troop 40230 will be hosting a collection drive at the Nanuet Stop & Shop for their Silver Award. They're looking for toiletry items for use by People to People, Rockland's largest food pantry located in Nanuet.
"We are holding a collection drive this Saturday, July 21 and Saturday, August 4," said Ferrante. "(We hope) this event could be a success for us as well as People to People." Their troop leader is Sharon Martini.
Conklin Scholarship Fund
The Conklin Scholarship Fund in conjunction with Flip 'n Dip will be hosting a fundraiser on Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight. Mention the Scholarship Fund when you order and a portion of the day's proceeds will go toward the organization.
"Our goal is to get the students and their families more involved in our cause. Since the scholarship is aimed at young student athletes we are hoping to educate the community on who we are, what we stand for and to make them aware that when the time comes they can apply for our scholarship," said the Conklins. "In joining up with Flip n Dip, we are hopeful that families will come out and show their support not only for our organization but toward the business' in our community that make Nanuet what it is. In addition to giving out scholarships to students at Nanuet High School the continued support of the community has allowed us to donate to the Highview Playground rebuild, and to Camp Nyack. We would like to thank Flip ‘N Dip for hosting our fundraiser and I can’t think of a better way to spend time with my kids then going out for ice cream on a hot summer day."
