March 10, 2009
Assemblyman Joe Giglio (R, C, I-Gowanda) today announced that in honor of New York State’s “Hunger Awareness Day” on March 19, he will be sponsoring a food drive throughout the 149th Assembly District.

Giglio detailed that from now until April 3, residents can drop off non-perishable food items at his district office at 700 Westgate Plaza in Olean or contact his office at (716) 373-7103 for a site pick-up or participating location.

“While many among us are struggling in these difficult times, I encourage people to participate in our food drive,” said Giglio. “This is an opportunity to come together as a community in the spirit of giving and make a difference right here in our own backyard.”

Giglio indicated the food will be donated to local food pantries throughout the community. For more information, contact Giglio’s district office at (716) 373-7103.

Assemblyman Giglio represents Cattaraugus and parts of Chautauqua and Allegany Counties.
