Slater Honors Putnam Counties Beloved Seniors in Albany

Assemblyman Matt Slater (R,C-Yorktown) hosted the Putnam County Office of Senior Resources Director Michael Cunningham and Irene Pawliczko, along with honorees Jimmy and Patty Rathschmidt from United for the Troops yesterday in Albany. They were awarded for their outstanding contributions to their communities through their volunteer work by the NYS Office for the Aging.

United for the Troops supports U.S. troops overseas by providing comforts of home, like snacks, toiletries, and other goods that are not supplied by the military. Their goal is to show appreciation for deployed troops’ efforts and give them the extra support and care they deserve. To date, they have sent more than 32,000 care packages to soldiers serving overseas.
