Red Cross on Long Island...someone posted this on FB

The Red Cross at Cedar Creek Park on Merrick Road, Wantagh is throwing food away because they have so much and no one is going there. They even have bags of food they want you to take to give to neighbors. Sandwiches, fruit, water, milk, coffee and OJ. That is lunch. Dinner is a hot meal. Tell your friends to go!! AND PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THIS INFO ON YOUR STATUS. IT APPEARS NO ONE IS GETTING THE INFO

I'm sorry for the snarkiness but this is like the 7th time this has been posted and it is a rumor.

This is the updated info. They've only been there for an hour and are open until 7pm.

The American Red Cross in Greater New York is set up in Cedar Creek Park on Merrick Road in Wantagh. They have food. Cold lunches consisting of sandwiches, fruit, coffee, milk and OJ. You take what you need and they have bags of the same for you to take for neighbors. They also serve hot dinners from 4 to 7pm. They also have information to businesses providing free hair wash and dry, showers, charging stations and computers available to use to get on Internet.

If you know you are being snarky...than own it and don't apologize..I am trying to be helpful..if this is not helpful to you, ignore it. I saw it, thought I would help and share.

I have gone to Cedar Creek and there is a lot of food there. The other day they gave my husband a box of oranges to give out to our neighbors. They were trying to give food to many people to take back to their neighbors. Please go if you need to! The food is there. I know they are also trying to deliver more food to neighborhoods because many people cannot come to them because of the gas problems.

I was sorry b/c it's unlike me to be snarky. However, I keep seeing false information being spread about this, on here and on FB. And it was posted here like 2 hours before you posted it.

I'm concerned because if people see this false information that the RedCross is throwing out food that could be used to feed others, it may prevent people from donating since they'll think it's wasteful. I get that you were trying to be helpful.

That's ok..I think many are just on edge..I saw this posted by a friend that works for the town of north hemstead, and I figured it was reliable..so that's why I shared it..
