HGCA Helps Families in Our Community Give Thanks

By   November 22, 2020

The holiday season is a time to support the families in our community who are less fortunate. With help from Lee Ave School, the HGCA was able to provide a Thanksgiving dinner and much more to three families.  A generous gift card was presented to each family to help them fill their pantries and table with food for the holiday season.

Thank you to all our members who sent in donations, especially the Simonello family for their continuous generous donation that provided enough food for one family.

Have a Happy & Healthy Thanksgiving!

Stay Well and Stay Safe!

HGCA Adopts Three Families for the Holiday Season

By   November 20, 2016

The mission of Hicksville Gardens Civic Association (HGCA) aims to improve the quality of life for the Hicksville community by encouraging community awareness, participation, and civic pride.

Thanksgiving is a time when we remember those in our community who are not as fortunate as we are in celebrating a family meal together on Thanksgiving Day.  Through Lee Avenue School, we were able to help donate a Thanksgiving meal for three families and fill their cupboards for the Holiday Season.  The Community Service committee would like to thank our members for their enormous generosity to our Thanksgiving Food Drive.  It was a huge success, enabling us to donate to a third family this year.

A special thank you to Foodtown for donating gift certificates for the purchase of a turkey for each family and to T Mobile for donating 2 cases of cereal.  A thank you to Mrs. Stam and Mrs. Kravitz for making us part of this successful food drive.
