In less than a week, the Nassau County Legislature’s Ukrainian Relief Drive collection bins at Cantiague Park have overflowed with supplies. Legislator Laura Schaefer, whose district includes Cantiague in Hicksville, and Legislator Rose Marie Walker, helped pack up the supplies.
The drive runs until March 25th, and boxes are located at Eisenhower Park, Wantagh Park, Christopher Morley Park, Grant Park, Nickerson Park, Cantiague Park and the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building. Food and clothing will no longer be accepted, however there is a great need for medical supplies and personal care items for all ages. After the drive ends, the supplies from all the County parks will be delivered to the Polish Consulate, who will then send it to Europe.
“I am thrilled by the turnout for this Ukrainian relief drive,” Legislator Schaefer said. “Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. These supplies will go a long way toward helping the people of the Ukraine.”
“It is heart-warming to see so many Nassau County residents donating supplies for those affected by this war,” Legislator Walker said. “I want to thank everyone for putting in the time and effort to donate. This is a reminder that there are so many good people in the world who will always help those in need. Please continue to pray for the people of the Ukraine.”
