Through September 22

GottAware Orange!

Orange shortbread and a free breakfast is Panera Bread’s way of saying “thank you” to guests who want to help Long Island’s food bank, Island Harvest, and combat hunger in our area.

By wearing orange (the color of hunger action) to Panera Bread café in Syosset, or any other location, through September 22 or mentioning the name “Island Harvest” at the register, guests receive a free orange shortbread cookie, after making a food purchase, along with a breakfast coupon to use on a future visit. They also receive a flyer about the problem of hunger that exists right here on Long Island and suggests ways to help.

“Small individual steps can add up to a larger impact,” says Greg George, Vice President for Doherty Enterprises, franchisee of  Long Island’s Paneras. “Why not ask co-workers to brown bag it for a week and then donate their savings to the local food bank or volunteer with your kids at a shelter or organize a neighborhood food drive?”

National statistics indicate that one in 6 people in America face hunger. That translates into 50 million people who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. September is Hunger Action Month and its goal is to mobilize the public to act and spread awareness about this critical issue.

Syosset-Woodbury Chamber Networking Event

Featuring author and speaker Wendy Levitt, who published her novel, At the Corner of Wall and Sesame, in 2011 and immediately began speaking about the issues inherent in America’s corporate and social culture that make the professional/personal wars inevitable. She advocates collusion over competition at both home and in the workplace, and uses humor to show how the norms that currently limit the way we can discuss balance can lead to explosive situations. In her speaking engagements Wendy advocates a three-point plan designed to improve each individual’s ability to pursue their personal definition of balance. She is the lead inventor on three American Express patents, and was twice recognized with the Chairman’s Award for Quality. In an effort to adjust her work/life balance, Wendy left American Express and founded Squirmie Wormie, a children’s clothing label sold throughout the tri-state area. $10 per person includes breakfast. Rachel’s Café, 57 Berry Hill Rd., Syosset. Registration is requested. www.syossetchamber.com. 8:30 a.m.-10 a.m.
