Tuesday, November 23, 2021 was a pretty busy day in the district for Suffolk County Legislator Nick Caracappa. Due to the overwhelming response to his holiday food drive, he delivered many of the proceeds to Pastor Hank Kistler at Connect Church, located at 31 Horseblock Road in Centereach. Connect Church will pass the food along to needy families, so they might enjoy the bounty of a Thanksgiving Day feast.
Legislator Caracappa also visited a historic Revolutionary site in Coram, referred to as the “Burning of the Hay.” On November 23, 1780, Major Benjamin Tallmadge and approximately 80 of his revolutionary patriots burnt 300 tons of hay in Coram to deny the British that essential winter staple. Caracappa went to the location to pay tribute to this daring act of bravery.
“I love how our community played a significant role in the United States’ success in the Revolutionary War,” stated Legislator Caracappa. More importantly, I am so proud that our modern day community looks out for those in need, and really showed an outpouring of generosity with the many food donations my office received. I am truly fortunate to live in and serve the people of the Fourth Legislative District.”
