Schimel Brings Donations To Vets


SchimelChair_031518ALast month New York State Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel was on the road to deliver handmade Valentines and assorted toiletries to veterans at the Long Island State Veterans Home in Stony Brook and the Northport VA Medical Center.

This district-wide effort, headed by Schimel, enlisted public and parochial schools, girl scouts and boy scouts, as well as members of the business communities and private citizens, to create homemade valentines and contribute needed items such as personal care products, outerwear and electronics to residents at both of the veterans’ facilities on Long Island.

“For the past eight years, residents in our community have shown their appreciation for the sacrifices that our veterans have made for us by sending valentines and donating all sorts of needed items,” said Schimel, a member of the Assembly’s Veterans Affairs Committee. “I thank the community for generously opening their hearts and showing our veterans that they have not been forgotten.”
