(MINEOLA, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan (Woodbury) collaborated with Home Depot and Community Relations Representative Mike Gallo to deliver more than 1,000 Kids Workshop kits to the young patients being treated at NYU Winthrop Hospital’s Child Life Program, Cancer Center for Kids and Pediatric Center. The youth-geared care packages include a soccer game, recycling truck, American eagle and other creativity-stimulating items.
“It was a pleasure partnering with the Cancer Center for Kids at NYU Winthrop Hospital. We were able to donate over 1,000 Kids’ Workshop kits, giving the children an opportunity to enjoy building and painting a diverse range of projects,” said Mike Gallo, Community Relations Representative for Home Depot. “Giving back is one of Home Depot’s core values and it was a privilege to be able to connect with the community in such an amazing way.
“I am delighted that Home Depot is continuing to provide courageous young people with healthy outlets for stimulating their minds and boosting their spirits as they continue to regain their health,” Legislator Lafazan said. “I will always cherish the opportunity to support efforts that bring smiles to so many faces, and I am thankful for Mike Gallo and Home Depot’s ongoing partnership.”
