State. Sen. Greg Ball, chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs committees, joined the Mahopac VFW Post 5491 Ladies Auxiliary recently to deliver winter clothing to Hudson Valley veterans.

The Mahopac VFW Post 5491 Ladies Auxiliary delivered large bags of shirts, socks, underwear, sweaters, pajamas and more to the veterans at Castle Point VA Hospital.

“I would like to thank the Mahopac Ladies Auxiliary, the Kent Seniors and Tracy Griffin for collecting all this much-needed clothing for our veterans. This clothing will go a long way to ensure that our veterans at Castle Point are well dressed this winter,” Ball said in a press release.

“It is getting very cold and some of these veterans are in dire need of warm clothing,” said Eugene Parrotta, chairman of Ball’s Veterans Advisory Council. “We appreciate Senator Ball and his team for everything they do for our veterans. Using the Senator’s large network, we should be able to collect a large amount of clothing for our veterans this winter.”
