Holbrook, NY - June 6, 2018 - Suffolk County Legislator Bill Lindsay recently launched an initiative to show his gratitude to active members of our military. Hospitality for Heroes will be an ongoing initiative to encourage community members to donate items for military care packages. Legislator Lindsay joined together with the Bayport Junior Civic and organized a care package for U.S. Navy Sailors in Africa. The students collected over 25 pounds worth of supplies such as snacks, shaving cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, puzzles, cards, and dice. They also showed their support for the sailors by writing them heartfelt letters filled with gratitude to express that their service is appreciated back home.

“I am amazed by the students of the Bayport Junior Civic for stepping up and showing their gratitude for these sailors by putting together this care package,” said Legislator Lindsay. “It is imperative we show our support to the men and women who selflessly risk their lives every day to protect our freedom. It was a pleasure to do this for them when they have done so much for us. I look forward to collecting more supplies, engaging our community, and sending Hospitality for Heroes packages to active military members throughout the year.”
Legislator Lindsay’s Hospitality for Heroes initiative will continue on a rolling basis throughout the year. Please feel free to drop off supplies you would like to send our troops during business hours at Legislator Lindsay’s district office, located at 1609 Grundy Avenue Holbrook, NY 11741.
