November is the time we “talk turkey” at HMUH!
Our top turkey Keith has his arms open wide, asking for your help in filling them with Thanksgiving nonperishables for families referred to us by schools and counselors.
We also try to assist other local nonprofits when they fall short with Thanksgiving donations, and by partnering with our friends at Caitlyn’s Vision, we will once again help the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office with their Thanksgiving giveaway for folks in need.
Donations can be dropped off at the deck box in front of 44 Hawkins Avenue, Center Moriches, or in the beige drop closet at the HMUH Building at 1 Neville Street, Center Moriches.
We hope everyone will come out for the Veterans Day parade on Nov. 5 at 2 p.m. on Main Street, East Moriches. Let’s show our veterans how much we appreciate them!
On Sunday, Nov. 19, we are partnering with TJ’s Heroes of Mastic Beach to host “Holiday Wishes for Willow,” a holiday gift card bingo, at the Mastic Fire Department beginning at noon and ending at 6 p.m. There will be music by Acoustic Keith from 12 to 1 p.m., comedy with John Butera from 1 to 2 p.m. (and we thank them for the donation of their services), and then the bingo from 2 to 6 p.m.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to a local family whose 5-year-old daughter suffers from Beals syndrome, a rare connective tissue disorder with resulting breathing complications necessitating frequent surgeries and rehabs. Heroes/chips available for purchase or BYO. Please help us help Willow and her family have a happy holiday.

Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving, all!
