As winter brings in sub-freezing temperatures to the area, State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. is partnering with P.S. 229 in Woodside for a Winter Coat and Food Drive to benefit families in the community.
From now until Monday, January 31, Addabbo’s offices will be collecting gently used winter coats, gloves, scarfs, and boots, as well as any non-perishable food items. On January 31, all the items donated will be brought to P.S. 229 in Woodside to be distributed to local families in need.
“I am happy to open my offices up to be drop off locations for this great community event,” Addabbo said. “Helping families stay warm during the frigid winter months is something we can all get behind. And we always hear from our local food pantries that they get plenty of food during the holiday season, but the rest of the year it can be more difficult to bring in donations. I want to thank the generous members of the community for their continued support in helping local families in need.”
Addabbo’s Howard Beach office is located at 159-53 102nd Street, and his Middle Village office is located at 66-85 73rd Place. The hours of operation for both offices are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you have any questions about this drive, contact Addabbo’s office at 718-738-1111.
