Nassau News Briefs – Dec. 22

Nassau County Veterans Service Agency and Texas Roadhouse collaborated to host a

Free Veterans Luncheon today. All Veterans who attended carried with them a Veterans

ID Card or DD-214. Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano welcomed the “brave and

dedicated veterans, and those on active military duty.”

 

“We owe a deep debt of gratitude to all of our veterans and their families who shouldered

those same burdens, days or decades ago, and thank them for the America we cherish

today,” he said. “It is vital that we remember the sacrifices of our veterans and support

them whenever and wherever possible.”

 

The Mangano administration has continued to partner with the private sector to build

affordable housing for veterans; offer free transportation to the Northport VA Hospital

and the East Meadow Clinic and help some of the more than 150,000 veterans, in

 

Nassau County, get whatever benefits they’re entitled to.

The Nassau County Police Department Community Affairs Unit and Police Department

Foundation partnered with the Westbury Target store today to host a community event

called Heroes and Helpers – to help 40 children from the Westbury School District.

Those children, who are in financial need, are paired with police officers to shop for gifts

for their families using donated gift cards from Target with matching funds from the

NCPD Foundation. Eight children from each of the district’s five schools had been

identified as meeting the financial criteria for this grant. The children and a guidance

counselor from each school were transported in Department vehicles to the Westbury

Target, where they were assisted by officers from the community affairs unit.
