New Hyde Park Memorial High School’s Student Congress was recently honored by
North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena, Councilman Dennis Walsh, Assemblyman Ed Ra, and members of the Town’s Veterans Advisory Committee for collecting $1,500 worth of gift cards in a week’s time and donating them to the Town’s Veterans Donation Drive.
The donation drive, which is running through Dec. 31, benefits the Northport VA Hospital and their “Hero Hunger Help” Project. The project began in 2006 and helps veterans combat food insecurity.
