Will you be their valentine?

Assemblyman Edward C. Braunstein and the law offices of Ann-Margaret Carrozza are sponsoring the community’s 21st annual “Valentines for Vets” gift drive.

 

Donation suggestions include cards, sugar-free candy, playing cards, puzzles, shaving cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste and new clothing items, such as pajamas, robes, slippers and socks.

All of the collected items will be sent to the Veterans Affairs Community Living Center in St. Albans. The deadline to make donations is Wednesday, Feb. 8.

Donations can be dropped off at the following locations:

  • Assemblyman Braunstein’s office, 213-33 39th Ave., Suite 238
  • Law Offices of Ann-Margaret Carrozza, 213-38 40th Ave.
  • Community Board 11 office, 46-21 Little Neck Pkwy.

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

“For the last 21 years, these donations have brightened the days of thousands of veterans by showing that we care about them and appreciate their sacrifices,” Carrozza said. “It would mean a great deal to our hospitalized heroes if you would choose to be their valentine by donating to our drive.”

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