[ARCHIVED] UPDATE: Partners with First Legislative District Libraries to Host Baby Formula Drive

BabyFormulaDriveWHAT: As local families struggle to navigate the impacts of a nationwide baby formula shortage, Nassau County Legislator Kevan M. Abrahams (D-Freeport) is partnering with the Baldwin, Hempstead, Freeport, East Meadow, Roosevelt, and Uniondale Public Libraries to launch a baby formula drive on Monday, May 23. 

All donations will be distributed to Long Island Cares to aid families who are struggling amidst the nationwide supply crunch that was triggered by a major recall of recall of Abbott Nutrition products.

“While I am relieved that the Defense Production Act was activated to produce formula and an agreement was reached to re-open Abbott Nutrition’s baby formula plant with federal oversight, it is expected to take several weeks to fully return to normal, and many local families need our help right now,” Legislator Abrahams said. “Through this partnership with our local libraries, I am hopeful that we will be able to give our residents the peace of mind that they deserve.”
