To spread love to those in need on Valentine’s Day, state Sen. Joseph Addabbo (D-Howard Beach) delivered a variety of items to local food pantries.
According to Addabbo, his constituents donated food and toiletries that he, in turn, shared with the Zion Tabernacle Food Pantry in Ozone Park and the Sacred Heart Food Pantry in Glendale on Feb. 14.
“It always feels good to help out those in need, but to do it on Valentine’s Day makes it extra special,” Addabbo said. “Our local food pantries are always looking for donations, not just during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. I am so thankful that my constituents came together to help bring happiness and love to people right in their own community who depend on these pantries.”
Addabbo noted that the donations from his constituents, includes students and parents from Ridgewood’s PS 88 that delivered 10 large boxes of canned food to his satellite office in Middle Village.
