Wellington C. Mepham High School’s front lawn will soon be filled with American flags once again as part of its annual Flag Field of Honor benefit for the Bellmore-Merrick Community Cupboard.
Residents can support their family members and friends in the armed services by sponsoring a flag to be flown at the high school between Nov. 7 and Dec. 8. American flags are $20 each, or 3 for $50, and U.S. Military Branch and POW*MIA flags are $50 each. All sponsorships include a keepsake 3x5 flag.
Proceeds will benefit the Senior Service Learning Project’s partnership with the Community Cupboard, which was established in 2016 to provide food for local families. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, the Cupboard has seen an increase in the number of residents in need, and through the generous donations of the Bellmore-Merrick community, it can continue to provide.
For more information or to sponsor a flag, contact Kerry Dennis or Chris Patten at (516) 992-1500 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
