Cona Elder Law's
Annual Food & Clothing Drives
Long Island Cares -- Food Drive:
As one of our many community projects, the staff at Cona Elder Law will be donating non-perishable food items to Long Island Cares, The Harry Chapin Food Bank. On December 19th, Cona Elder Law staff will be volunteering at the LI Cares warehouse to sort and pack food donations which will be distributed to 560 soup kitchens and food pantries across Long Island.
Please join us in supporting the Long Island Cares food bank by bringing non-perishable food items to the Susan C. Snowe Caregiver Resource Center located at Cona Elder Law's Melville offices between now and March 31, 2013.
