With the turn of the calendar into the new decade comes another “Valentines for Vets” gift drive.

The 24th annual drive, hosted by Assemblyman Edward Braunstein and the Law Offices of Ann-Margaret Carrozza, is running until Wednesday, February 12.

The drive is collecting the following items to be donated to the hospitalized and disabled veterans at the St. Albans VA Community Living Center and the NYS Veterans’ Home in St. Albans:

  • Cards
  • Candy
  • Playing cards
  • Puzzles
  • Shaving cream
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Pajamas
  • Robes
  • Slippers
  • Socks

“For the last 24 years, these donations have brightened the days of thousands of veterans by showing that we care about them and appreciate their sacrifices,” Carrozza says. “It would mean a great deal to our hospitalized heroes if you would choose to be their valentine by donating to our gift drive.”
