Assemblyman Ed Braunstein (D-Bayside) and the law offices of Ann-Margaret Carrozza are sponsoring the 18th annual Valentines for Vets gift drive.
“We are collecting donations of cards, candy, toiletries and new clothing items such as pajamas, robes, slippers and socks for the hospitalized and disabled veterans at the St. Albans Community Living Center of the VA New York Harbor Healthcare System and the New York State Veterans Home at St. Albans,” Braunstein said.
Carrozza, who served in the Assembly prior to Braunstein, said the donations “brighten the day of hundreds of veterans by showing them that we care about them and appreciate their sacrifices.
“It would mean a great deal to our hospitalized and disabled heroes if you would choose to be their valentine by donating to our drive,” she said.
The deadline to make donations is Wednesday, Feb. 12. If you are interested in participating and would like to receive further information, contact Braunstein’s office at (718) 357-3588 or Carrozza’s office at (718) 224-4746.
