FOR YOUR INFORMATION
 

Almost Home

As your Legislator for the 9th District of Suffolk County and in collaboration with local non-profit organizations who selflessly serve our communities, I ask that we join in solidarity to help our less fortunate neighbors during these harsh winter months. For the third consecutive year, these community organizations have joined forces with local churches to create the "ALMOST HOME..." in from the cold program. This year they have extended the weekly program to four nights a week and are seeking volunteers to assist during the overnight shifts.
