North Hempstead Hosts Veterans Donation Drive Benefiting the Northport VA
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth, the Town Board, and the Town’s Veterans Advisory Committee are proud to be hosting the 8th annual Veteran’s Donation Drive benefiting the Northport VA Medical Center. This year’s donations will once again benefit the Hero Hunger Help Project.
“We are so proud to again join with the Northport VA for our annual Veterans Donation Drive,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “We are encouraging residents to contribute gift cards this holiday season for veterans in need. This is truly a community drive as the Town works collaboratively with local schools and organizations to give back to those who have served our country.”
The Hero Hunger Help Project, which began in 2006, helps veterans combat food insecurity. As part of the donation drive, the Town is collecting gift cards for grocery stores and pharmacies. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no clothing, personal care goods or other items will be accepted.
Those interested in donating can mail gift cards to: Veterans Advisory Committee, Town of North Hempstead, 220 Plandome Road, Manhasset, NY 11030. For more information, please call 311.
