For several years, Hackley has built a connection with the Community Food Bank of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow that helps Hackley employees help the local community. This year, 53 Hackley faculty and staff donated turkeys so that local families could enjoy their Thanksgiving that much more. In addition, Hackley students and their families donated non-perishable packaged and canned goods to Neighborhood House in Tarrytown, which in turn distributed them to families and senior citizens in need. Happy Thanksgiving!
