King Kullen’s 34th annual James A. Cullen Memorial Golf Outing has raised $100,000 for Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York. The not-for-profit organization finds adoptive and foster homes for children on Long Island and in New York City.
King Kullen Co-President Brian C. Cullen explained that he and his brothers started the the annual golf outing more than three decades ago to pay tribute to their father, James A. Cullen, and to support Little Flower’s foster care and adoption services. “Since then, King Kullen has raised well over $3 million for Little Flower,” Cullen observed. “We are extremely proud of this accomplishment and King Kullen’s role in supporting Little Flower Children and Family Services in their important mission.”
Little Flower Executive Director Corinne Hammons stated, “So many children and families have been helped thanks to King Kullen and its close circle of family and friends. Whether at our residences or at homes where Little Flower places children with caring parents, we are able to continue our mission as a result of the hands-on involvement of Brian, Tom and James Cullen and the many King Kullen employees who contribute their time each year. The golf outing remains a great success that directly benefits the children of Little Flower.”
Members of the Cullen family are personally involved in Little Flower and have actively supported many programs, including the construction of eight cottages that provide a residential setting for more than 100 children and teenagers at Little Flower’s Wading River, New York, location.
A non-sectarian, nonprofit organization, Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York provides residential and foster boarding home care, as well as adoption services. Little Flower has its main campus in Wading River, NY, executive offices in Brooklyn Heights, and additional locations in Flatbush, Brooklyn, and Jamaica, Queens. Little Flower also operates the only residential special-act public school district in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, which offers academic services for children with special educational needs.
Headquartered in Bethpage, New York, King Kullen Grocery Company, Inc. is recognized by the Smithsonian Institution as America’s first supermarket. Founded in 1930 by Michael J. Cullen, King Kullen operates 34 stores and five Wild by Nature markets across Long Island.
