In his State of the State address today, Governor Cuomo said what I’ve been saying all along — we need to cut taxes, reduce spending and create jobs so that New York becomes an attractive place to live and raise a family.

On Tuesday, December 21 the 122 Precinct will host a blood drive in the Muster Room from 12pm-5:30pm. Blood donors must be between the ages of 16 and 76 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be in good health. There is no substitute for human blood. Its only source is healthy caring people who understand that giving blood is a community responsibility. Please come out and donate blood alongside Staten Island's finest!
90% of homeless adults need a new, warm coat each winter because they have no place to keep one over the summer months. But it's not just homeless people who need our help; thousands of New Yorkers each year are forced to make a choice between buying a winter coat and putting food on the table, or meeting other basic survival needs.
New York Cares collects nearly 70,000 gently used, freshly laundered winter coats each December and distributes them to thousands of men, women, and children who would otherwise be cold.
Please help and bring a gently used coat to the Holiday Treat Open House at the 122 Precinct on December 17 from 6am-9pm
