The Castellana Foundation, Western Beef, parent company Cactus Holdings and President Peter Castellana III, proudly announce their support for GrowNYC who will facilitate food donations to families for the Thanksgiving holidays at their Food Hub at Grand Army Plaza. GrowNYC helps New Yorkers by providing essential services and taking action to make NYC a truly livable city, one where every person can flourish. They achieve this through their Green Market which provides a means for local farmers to sell their products to New York City communities, their recycling program, gardening program which spans the five boroughs, and through education. For the Castellana Foundation, the causes that GrowNYC addresses are ones that the foundation and companies are not only already engaged with, but causes we truly care about and therefore are thrilled to be able to help in a small way by donating turkeys for this year’s Thanksgiving.
Peter Castellana III, Peter Castellana Jr. and the Castellana Foundation, along with Western Beef were happy to support Ronald McDonald House of Long Island by donating $2,500 so they could keep on giving comfort and shelter to families experiencing the pain of having sick child in local hospital facilities. For 30 years the house has been a “home away from home” to over 21,000 families from Long Island and NY Metropolitan area. The home provides the parents and siblings of these children with a temporary haven in a secure and comfortable environment among other families sharing a similar burden.
In recognition and celebration of the critical life saving work of the FDNY, department, The Castellana Foundation, along with Peter Castellana III and Peter Castellana Jr, were honored to donate $1000 at the FDNY foundation dinner.
