COMMACK — CSEA’s Long Island Region Veterans Committee is always making an effort to give back to area veterans.

The committee has been accepting donations of personal care items and food for veterans who are residing at or using services at organizations such as the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the Long Island State Veterans Home, Boots on the Ground and The Veterans Place.

All of the CSEA member donated goods, which include games, clothing and gloves, were recently delivered by Long Island Region Veterans Committee members and other volunteers to the various facilities.
