Several PSEG Long Island facilities will be utilized to assist Island Harvest with upcoming donation drop-off days. The community is invited to safely donate food and essential items to support neighbors facing financial issues and food insecurity.
Collection bins will be set up outside the PSEG Long Island Patchogue office located at 460 E. Main St. on Thursday, Nov. 5, from 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
PSEG Long Island employees will be on-site to help coordinate donations of nonperishable food items and essential products while following contactless and physical distancing safety guidelines. Masks are required and hand sanitizer will be available. Please note: To continue to protect our customers and employees, the customer office will remain closed.
