Suffolk County Veterans Discount Program

Suffolk County is home to numerous brave men and women who have honorably served our country in the Armed Forces. Their commitment to upholding and defending the principles our nation is founded upon deserves the highest degree of respect and gratitude. That is why I am asking Suffolk County business owners to join me in giving something back to those who have given us so much.

Would you consider offering Veterans a small discount and signing up to be part of the Suffolk County Veterans Discount Program? By participating in this program, your business name will be displayed on the Suffolk County website, with your address and discount specifications. The nature of the discount that each individual business is willing to provide is at your discretion.

Contact my office for more information (631) 854-4500.

Survival Kit
 

Dear Constituent,

Our office has put together the enclosed “Survival Kit” for people in need of assistance in these tough economic times. It is geared towards the person who normally does not ask for help and might not know where to turn in order to receive it.

Stress can get to the best of us. This packet provides contact information for a wide range of agencies that you can reach out to in your time of need. Many different types of counseling services are offered.

Finding a job, let alone a good job, in this economy is hard. This packet gives information about resources you can utilize in your job search. If you need to boost your qualifications, there are places where you can take classes and improve your skills.

Lots of folks are working overtime, and don’t spend as much time with their families as they used to. Finding a good babysitter can be difficult. Some agencies offer referrals for childcare. If you don’t have enough time to help your kids with their schoolwork, tutoring and homework help classes are listed for your convenience.

What do you do when all of your money is going to pay your bills and taxes? Information about food pantries and health services are provided, as is information on rent and mortgage assistance, housing loans, as well as bill and tax assistance programs.

In these difficult times, there is nothing wrong with reaching out for a little assistance.

Hopefully, the information we have provided in this “Survival Kit” will help.

Benevolent Residents Donate Their Time, Services, and Expertise!
 
 

Legislator Spencer was honored to present the individuals from Operation Hearts and Home, Long Island Spine Specialists, Medtronic Instrumentation Company, and Long Island Plastic Surgical Group with proclamations for helping provide Tizita Tesfay from Ethiopia with a more comfortable and healthy life.

Tizita, an 18-year old Ethiopian girl, who suffered from acute scoliosis, had a curve in her spine so severe that she only stood 4 feet 8 inches tall. After a grueling 9 hour procedure, where doctors surgically implanted stiff rods to hold her spine and vertebrae in place, Tizita gained 4 inches in stature.

The Doctors from Long Island Spine Specialists and Long Island Plastic Surgical Group generously agreed to perform the surgery, and Medtronic agreed to donate the instrumentation necessary to correct her deformity. Mae Caime, the Office Manager from Long Island Spine Specialists graciously opened her home and heart to Tizita during her recuperation period. Tizita has made a full recovery and is now home with her family in Ethiopia!

 

 
Brothers Donated Hundreds Turkeys!
 
 
It was with great pride and appreciation that Legislator Spencer presented Andre Sorrentino with a proclamation thanking him and his brother Pasquale, for their generosity this past Easter. In April, the Sorrentino brothers donated several hundred turkeys for local families in need. Pictured above is Legislator Spencer with Andre Sorrentino and his daughter Mia.
