Give back to those who gave their all in service to the U.S. during the 20th annual “Valentines for Vets” gift drive now underway in northeast Queens.

Assemblyman Edward C. Braunstein and the law offices of Ann-Margaret Carrozza are sponsoring this event, which benefits hospitalized and disabled veterans at the St. Albans VA Community Living Center and the New York State Veterans Home at St. Albans. Requested donations include cards, candy, toiletries, and new clothing items such as socks, slippers, robes and pajamas.

“I am proud to sponsor such a long-standing northeast Queens community tradition,” Braunstein said.

“For the last 20 years, these donations have brightened the days of thousands of veterans by showing that we care about them and appreciate their sacrifices. It would mean a great deal to our hospitalized heroes if you would choose to be their Valentine by donating to our drive,” Carrozza added.

The deadline to make donations is Wednesday, Feb. 10. Gifts can be dropped off at the following locations:

  • Assemblyman Braunstein’s office, located at 213-33 39th Ave. in Bayside;
  • The Law Offices of Ann-Margaret Carrozza, located at 213-38 40th Ave. in Bayside;
  • Whitestone Volunteer Ambulance Service, located at 12-15 150th St. in Whitestone; and
  • Community Board 11, located at 46-21 Little Neck Pkwy. in Little Neck.

For more information, contact Braunstein’s office at 718-357-3588 or Carrozza at 718-224-4746.
