On November 21st, a Stand Down was held at the Freeport Armory to assist homeless and struggling veterans. Members of the Manhasset American Legion Auxiliary attended and were joined by members of the St. Mary’s Columbiettes. Prior to the Stand Down, our Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts assisted us in the collection of new clothing that was distributed to the veterans at the Stand Down.
Vice President and Treasurer, Elizabeth Parrella, and President, Pat O’Brien, helped veterans select clothing
The Columbiettes were pleased to meet a veteran accompanied by a service dog from America’s VetDogs in Smithtown. The Columbiettes had recently made a generous donation to the organization and were proud to meet a veteran willing to explain the positive impact the service dog had on his life.
