Student Council members from Holy Cross H.S., Flushing, collaborated with Assemblyman Edward C. Braunstein’s office as well as the Law Offices of Ann-Margaret Carrozza to collect nearly $1,000 for veterans on St. Valentine’s Day.

The annual program assists veterans by providing them with a custom Valentine’s Day card, a sweet treat or two, playing cards, puzzles, shaving cream,toothbrushes and toothpaste or new clothing items.

Several members of Holy Cross’ Student Council, with the help of student volunteers,successfully delivered the packaged gifts to Assemblyman Braunstein’s Office Feb. 8, where they will make their way into the hands of hospitalized and disabled veterans.
