     Senator Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) and Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) will be partnering with Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano in sponsoring a free Senior ID Card Program in Baldwin.

     The program will be held from 1:00 pm- 4:00 pm on Wednesday, April 10th at the Baldwin Library, located at 2385 Grand Avenue, Baldwin. Nassau County residents ages 65 and over are eligible to participate and receive a free senior ID card. No appointments are necessary.

     The program allows seniors to obtain a free wallet-sized ID card which includes a photo, the holder’s personal contact information (name, address, phone number, date of birth), and an emergency contact name and phone number which could be useful to emergency responders. Seniors can carry the card in their wallet so that emergency responders will know who to contact if the senior is in an emergency situation and cannot communicate.

     Residents who would like more information about the Free Senior ID Card program on April 10th can call Senator Skelos’ office at 516-766-8383 or Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
