Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel Continues Valentines for Vets

January 7, 2011
Great Neck – Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel invites the 16th Assembly District to open their hearts to the annual Valentines for Vets Program. This is a district-wide effort to show the veterans who have served our country that they are appreciated and have not been forgotten.

“As a member of the Assembly’s Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I look forward to your participation in continuing to make this program an overwhelming success,” said Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel.

What better way to show our appreciation for the sacrifices that our veterans have made for us than to send a valentine or donate an item that veterans can use? Please drop off items by Monday, January 31 to Assemblywoman Schimel’s District Office located at 45 North Station Plaza, Suite 203 in Great Neck. Questions about the program can be directed to the office at (516) 482-6966.

All items must be new. Suggested donations include handmade valentines, tooth brushes, tooth paste, denture adhesive, shampoo, deodorant, hair brushes, non-slip socks, winter hats, gloves, scarves, stamps, patriotic caps or t-shirts, compact discs, scratch-off lottery tickets, iTunes gift cards, wheel chair cup holders, note cards, phone cards, hand-held computer games, electric razors, clock radio/cassette players, walkmans, terry cloth robes, winter coats, universal remotes, DVDs, portable CD players, ear phones, electric toothbrushes, sweatpants and sweatshirts. We hope to collect a truckload that will be distributed at the New York State Veterans Home in Stony Brook and the Northport VA Medical Center.
