Great Neck - Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel recently delivered two truckloads of handmade valentines and donated items to the Long Island State Veterans Home in Stony Brook and the Northport VA Medical Center.

Public and parochial schools, as well as businesses and private citizens in our community donated personal care items, outerwear, and electronics for Assemblywoman Schimel's annual Valentines for Vets program.

"For the fourth year residents have generously opened their hearts and demonstrated their strong support for our veterans," said Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel, a member of the Assembly's Veterans Affairs Committee. "I thank all of those who helped to make this project a success."

The Assemblywoman delivered these items to the veterans on Friday, February 11.
