Ellen DeFrancesco maintains the macaronikid.com Long Beach-Oceanside-Rockville Centre website where she writes a weekly newsletter that allows moms to delete the Saturday morning newspaper search. She's working with Bethany House to collect money for backpacks our kids will need.
"This year Macaroni Kid Long Beach-Oceanside-Rockville Centre is partnering with Bethany House. I ask you to join me and my family in creating a backpack with new school supplies to give to needy Long Island kids. Kids just like ours who live in OUR community. NOW WE'VE EVEN MADE IT EASIER TO HELP LOCAL KIDS. You can supply a child with a backpack AND supplies for $20. - Ellen DeFrancesco, Macoroni Kid"
