Saladino & LaMarca Launch Collection Drive to Support Veterans at VA Hospital

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Town Clerk Richard LaMarca call on residents to ‘Spring into Action’ to support veterans by donating to a collection drive in support of the Northport VA. From April 15th to May 15th, residents are invited to donate toiletries and new clothing.


“From hosting veteran appreciation events to recognizing their service with Hometown Heroes Banners in our parks, the Town of Oyster Bay is committed to honoring veterans for their service to our nation,” Supervisor Saladino said. “Please join this mission to help bring the comforts of home to veterans living at the Northport VA Hospital by making a donation to our collection drive.”


Most needed items include toiletries (toothbrushes/toothpaste, denture adhesive, hairbrushes/combs, unscented deodorant, body wash, unscented lotion, nail clippers/files, and shampoo/conditioner), men’s/women’s clothing (assorted sizes of underwear/briefs, sweatshirts, sweatpants with no drawstring, long-sleeve t-shirts, slippers and flip flops sized L, XL).


“When I learned that the Northport VA has a ‘Wish List’ of items their veterans desperately need, I knew residents would generously spring into action to help ensure these needs are met,” said Clerk LaMarca. “I thank the residents of our wonderful Town in advance for their generosity and support of our veterans.”


The Town’s Collection Drive will run for 30 days beginning April 15th. Collection Bins will be available on weekdays from 9:00am to 4:45pm at Town Hall North (54 Audrey Ave, Oyster Bay) and Town Hall South (977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa).
