Nassau County Legislator Joshua A. Lafazan (Woodbury-D) held a supply drive, collecting household, medical, and other miscellaneous supplies for Ukrainian Refugees. The supply drive came shortly after the Russian invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022. It was one of the first supply drives on Long Island for Ukrainian Refugees.
The supply drive began at 10:00 a.m. and ended around 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 3, 2022 at the Woodbury Jewish Center. The supply drive was in partnership with the Woodbury Jewish Center and Men on the Move, moving professionals based in Woodbury.
Hundreds of people from all over Long Island and New York City dropped off supplies. The humanitarian and medical supplies collected filled two 26-foot moving trucks. The supplies will be donated to the Afya Foundation in Yonkers.
“In times like these, it is more important than ever to have our community come together and help those in need. The generosity of everyone who donated today is truly boundless, and we are so grateful to everyone” Lafazan said. “Today is a great example of the community uniting to aid vulnerable people.”
