Oyster Bay, NY - January 10, 2019 - Senator Jim Gaughran and Assemblyman Charles Lavine will be holding a press conference on Friday, January 11th at 10:30am to announce their Food and Supplies Drive to benefit federal employees affected by the current government shutdown. Each official will be collecting food, personal care products, household supplies, pet food, and other items at their district offices. They will be joined by Long Island Cares CEO Paule Pachter.
 
Senator Gaughran said “Our federal workers don’t have the luxury of sacrificing their paychecks for an undetermined amount of time. Federal workers on Long Island are now expected to choose between feeding their families or paying their mortgage. I am proud to spearhead this critical initiative with Assemblyman Lavine and Long Island Cares to provide essential services to the thousands of workers across Long Island during this challenging time.”
 
The press conference will be held at Sagamore Hill Historic Site, which has been shuttered as a result of the federal government shutdown. Sagamore Hill is a former home of President Theodore Roosevelt.
