Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel Announces Coats For Kids And Veterans Drive

October 13, 2009
Great Neck – With winter fast approaching, Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel is asking constituents to participate in the Coats for Kids campaign, sponsored by the National Cleaners Association and Randi’s Cleaners in Mineola. Assemblywoman Schimel will also be collecting coats for veterans that will be distributed at the Veterans Stand-Down on November 23 at the New York State Armory in Freeport.

Please donate your gently-used outerwear for children and adults. Donated coats will be cleaned free of charge and then distributed to agencies who help needy children and their families.

Donations can be dropped off in boxes located at the Great Neck Senior Citizens Center at 80 Grace Avenue and outside the main office of the Herricks Community Center at 999 Herricks Road in New Hyde Park.

If you have questions about this or any state or community issue please contact my office at (516) 482-6966
