TOBAY Soldier Collection Drive


donationsIn an effort to gather supplies for men and women serving in the Armed Forces, The Town of Oyster Bay is participating in the 2014 Soldier Collection Drive and is asking Jericho and Syosset residents to help give their support. Town Councilman Anthony D. Macagnone said this is the seventh year the town is participating in this collection drive.

“Last year, Oyster Bay residents, with the assistance of the CSEA, donated more than 2,000 pounds of much-needed supplies,” Councilman Macagnone stated. “This year, with residents’ support, we hope to surpass that amount.”

Anyone interested in donating to the collection drive may drop off items at the Department of Public Works (CSEA entrance) in Syosset through March 21.

“I believe it is critical that we do our part to boost the morale of our soldiers,” Councilman Macagnone said. “This program serves as an important reminder to our uniformed service personnel that the daily sacrifices they make are not taken for granted. Your help will go a long way to support our dedicated military personnel.”

Items needed include: Antibiotic & Cortisone ointments; White Socks; Visine; Athletic T-shirts (black or brown only); Pepto Bismol tablets; Beef Jerky; Tylenol/Advil; Old Cell Phones (without chargers please); Band-Aids; Peanut Butter; Deodorant; Cereal; Powder; Microwave Pastas & Soups; Mach 3 Razors; GNC Protein Shakes; Mouthwash; Tuna Fish (pre-mixed packets, no cans); Chapstick; Nuts; Body Wash; Feminine Products; Gummi Bears; Baby Wipes; Lollipops/ Hard candy/Mints; and Empty Shoe Boxes.
