Assemblyman Edward C. Braunstein (D-Bayside) is happy to announce his office’s “Valentines for Vets” gift drive, where Queens residents are invited to donate new clothing, candy and other items that will be given to local veterans. Red t-shirts are also requested for veterans who will attend a Valentine's Day celebration. The deadline to make donations is Wednesday, February 9, 2022.
“I am proud to sponsor ‘Valentines for Vets,’ a long-standing Northeast Queens tradition that shows thanks and appreciation to our local veterans,” said Assemblyman Braunstein. “In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, my office is collecting donations of cards, candy, playing cards and puzzles, as well as new clothing items such as pajamas, robes, slippers, socks and festive red t-shirts. Please contribute if you are able and I thank you in advance for your generosity.”
Those who would like to drop off donations can bring them to Assemblyman Braunstein’s office, which is located at 213-33 39th Avenue, Suite 238. Items will be donated to hospitalized and disabled veterans at the St. Albans VA Community Living Center and the New York State Veterans’ Home at St. Albans.
