Addabbo and Russo's on the Bay help provide free lunches for veterans on Memorial Day

In honor of Memorial Day, on Monday, May 25, State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. partnered with Frank Russo and Russo’s on the Bay in Howard Beach to provide free grab-and-go lunches for veterans.

“With Memorial Day happening this year during the COVID-19 pandemic, all parades were canceled,” explained Addabbo, a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs. “I still wanted to do something to honor our veterans, so I had the idea of providing them we free lunch. I would like to thank Frank Russo and the entire Russo’s staff for their partnership and for helping to make this day special for our veterans. I am optimistic that conditions will improve by Veterans Day, so we can honor veterans with the ceremonies and fanfare they deserve.”
