Legislator Gonsalves Supports Long Island Cares’ Superstorm Sandy Food Drive

Nassau County Legislative Presiding Officer Norma L. Gonsalves proudly sponsored the 2nd Annual Legislative Food Drive Challenge in support of the Long Island Cares, Inc. Harry Chapin Food Drive.  All food and non-perishable donations will go towards meeting the needs of 300,000+ food-insecure Long Islanders and assist the unexpected need of the families affected by Superstorm Sandy.  Many thanks to all donors. Special thanks to Sacred Heart Shawl Ministry of North Merrick for the donations of all of the handmade warm blankets and shawls.  To make additional donations, visit
