(GLEN COVE, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D - Glen Cove) partnered with the Nassau County Police Benevolent Association (PBA) to distribute more than 1,500 backpacks filled with school supplies during a back-to-school event in Glen Cove on Thursday, Sept. 10.
“This year, with so many families facing economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was especially wonderful to work with the Nassau County PBA to help our community have the best possible start to the school year,” Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton said. “I thank the Nassau County PBA and President James McDermott for their generous donation and extend my appreciation to all of the volunteers who worked through a morning rainstorm to make this distribution event a tremendous success.”
