The Town of Huntington and Councilwoman Susan Berland are once again hosting a holiday pet food drive, hoping to improve on last year’s successful drive, which brought in over 600 pounds of food for the town’s pets in needs.

Beginning last Monday and continuing through Monday, Jan. 4, residents can drop off dog and cat food at the following locations around town:

· Huntington Town Hall, 100 Main St., Huntington.

All proceeds will be donated to the Harry Chapin Food Bank & Humanitarian Center in Huntington Station, which has made a special request for cat food.
