There was excitement and pride as The Wheatley School in Old Westbury, NY hosted its first Homecoming event on September 24th. The Wheatley/Carle Place WILDFROGS kicked off their 2010/2011 season with much fanfare.

In addition to lively school spirit, activities for kids and yummy treats, Pigskins & Turkeys was there to cheer on the team and help spread the word about our mission. The event was such a success that we were invited to Carle Place's Homecoming event on October 15th!

We've really enjoyed participating in these events as we've helped to raise awareness about our organization among the community and collect donations to help feed local families in time for Thanksgiving. Look for us on the sidelines again next year!

Zaino's Nursery in Westbury, NY hosted its 2nd Annual "Day of Community Giving" on October 3rd. Proceeds from raffle ticket sales and a portion of the day's retail sales were donated to Pigskins & Turkeys and local chapters of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, American Diabetes Association, and Autism Awareness organizations.

Children learned about the mission of Pigskins & Turkeys and decorated foam turkeys to take home as a remembrance of the family their donation helped to feed this Thanksgiving season.

Zaino's Nursery in Westbury, NY kicked off the month of November by giving thanks. On November 1st, Zaino's hosted a fun-filled afternoon to help support local organizations that are working to raise awareness and funds for charitable causes.

Pigskins & Turkeys participated in the event with a kid-friendly activity that helped spread the word about our cause. Kids stopped by our arts & crafts table to decorate "turkeys" to bring home as a reminder of the families their donation helped to feed this holiday season.

Below are some pictures from the event.
