Legis. Robert Troiano and Community Leaders Distribute
Over 400 Free Book Bags to Local Youth
(Westbury, NY) – Nassau County Legislator Robert Troiano (D-Westbury), accompanied by two dozen volunteers and community leaders, held the 4th Annual Great American Book Bag and School Supplies Giveaway. Over 400 local youth came to the event with their families to receive the schools supplies they will need for the new school year – from book bags and notebooks, to pens and pencils.
At the event, Legislator Troiano encouraged the students to have a positive attitude, carve out time each day to study and complete homework assignments. He also thanked local community leaders and businesses for their continued and generous support of this annual event. The event was festive and upbeat with music and light refreshments being served.
“Supporting our local youth is one of the most important responsibilities we have, elected official or not, it’s vital that we come together and provide the support and guidance needed to ensure our kids get off to the best start they can,” Troiano said at the event.
At the event, Legislator Troiano recognized Ms. Estelle Meyers for organizing the event and gave a special “thank you” to Prospect Avenue merchants Benitos Communications and Lucky’s Variety Store for their sponsorship.
