Community Update: Thousands Advocate in Albany, Toiletry Drive, Alb any Update

Senator Shelley B. Mayer

March 29, 2023

Dear Friends,

Spring is finally here, and it brings increasingly busy days in Albany, with continuing negotiations for the final state budget and the approaching April 1 deadline, as well as so many exciting and important activities in the district. 

Throughout last week, tens of thousands of New Yorkers and advocates came to Albany to advocate for issues of importance to them and to make sure their voices were heard.  I listen to all advocates, on all sides of the issues and stand alongside many of them at their rallies, helping to champion their efforts. You can read more about these advocates, their organizations and issues below. 

From March 25 to April 25, I will be holding a Toiletry Drive for My Sister’s Place, a local organization that provides shelter, advocacy and other services to women who have experienced domestic violence and human trafficking. You can donate in three ways: Drop off your donation at one of three locations, mail a gift card to My Sister’s Place, or donate through their Amazon wish list. Further information is below.

As always, if there is anything my office can assist you with, please email me at or call (914) 934-5250.

Warm regards,
Shelley B. Mayer
State Senator
37th District
