Saying Thanks

Recently, All For The East End, or AFTEE, hosted a series of drive-in movies, called “Show Time in Southampton.” Some came for a date night, others a fun family outing, all in a safe, socially distant environment to benefit our community.

While seeing a drive-in movie was a night out, it also allowed AFTEE to remind everyone that our challenges are not over, that we must stay vigilant and concerned about the impact the pandemic continues to have on our friends and neighbors who struggle to make ends meet and to feed their families.

We want to publicly thank our “Show Time in Southampton” community partners: Audi of Southampton, BNB Bank, Corcoran, California Closets, Cook Maran, East End Tick, Emil Norsic & Sons, Enzo Moribito, Farrell Building, Fresh Direct Inteltec, Lang Insurance, Myron Levine, Ocean Electric, Pilato PR+Marketing, the Sassower family, Wainscott Farms, and all of our hardworking volunteers. You came through for AFTEE and for all of the nonprofits who receive AFTEE grants.

And thank you to our media partners, print and broadcast, who generously helped us spread the word both about the movies and AFTEE’s mission.

AFTEE has experienced the generosity of our wonderful community. When the pandemic hit and the food pantries were stressed by increasing numbers of people in need, so many made donations, at all levels. That is exactly how AFTEE has been able to raise nearly $1 million and provide grants to food pantries and nonprofit organizations across the East End dealing with food instability and other issues caused by this horrible pandemic.

More funds and resources will be needed as we move into the fall. But AFTEE is planning for the future. Today, we focus on food instability, but we will be ready, with your help, for whatever challenges the East End nonprofit community faces. Join us at aftee.org.
