Garden City’s Colonel Aaron Ogden Chapter of NSDAR sponsored a food drive for the Nassau County Veterans Services Vet Mart. DAR members and Veterans volunteers, Louise Ryder, Jan Pepe and Carla Hall D’Ambra delivered food recently donated by generous local residents.

The Vet Mart provides quality food items to Nassau County veteran households experiencing food insecurity. The Vet Mart is open Monday through Friday from 9am – 12 where they can pick up food and pantry items. The Vet Mart is always in need of food and would truly appreciate donations. The Vet Mart and VA clinic are adjacent to Nassau University Medical Center in Building Q.
