The Kiwanis Club of Astoria-Long Island City has been a long-time supporter of QSAC's annual holiday food drive. In fact, for over 20 years, with support from Paul Halvatzis -- a QSAC parent, board member, and Kiwanian -- the food drive has helped to provide families in need with access to all of the meal essentials for the holiday season as well as toys for children during the December holidays. As a part of this year's collection, the Kiwanians hosted a collection at Key Food in Astoria on Sunday, November 5, 2023. The Kiwanians collected a van full of essentials to help QSAC families celebrate the holiday season.
