The community is invited to safely donate food and essential items at PSEG Long Island’s Hewlett facility to help neighbors facing food insecurity.

On Thursday, November 12 from 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m., the PSEG Long Island Hewlett office (455 Mill Rd., Hewlett) will be a drop-off site for Island Harvest donations. Collection bins will be set up outside the office for community members to drop off food and essential items. PSEG Long Island employees will be on hand to help coordinate.

Contactless and physical distancing safety guidelines will be followed. Masks are required. Hand sanitizer will be available. Please note: To continue to protect customers and employees, the customer office will remain closed.

Island Harvest has a need for specific items, including:

  • Nonperishable food: Low-sodium canned beans, vegetables, soups, pasta sauces and canned tomatoes, canned tuna and chicken, rice, popcorn kernels, nut butters, olive and canola oil, and pet food.
  • Household essentials: Toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer, laundry detergent, dish soap, and face coverings.
  • Personal care items: Toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, soap, shampoo, conditioner, feminine care products, shaving products, and washcloths.
  • Baby care items: Diapers, wipes, formula, ointments, and baby wash.

Over the past few weeks, PSEG Long Island employees have collected hundreds of pounds of food and essential items for Island Harvest at four other office locations across Nassau and Suffolk. This will be the final drop-off site before Thanksgiving.
