Constituents of the 22nd Assembly District benefit from back-to-back turkey distributions facilitated by Member Michaelle C. Solages ahead of the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend.
ELMONT NY (Novemver 21, 2022) –
The office of Assemblywoman Michaelle C. Solages held two successful turkey giveaways in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving 2022. Member Michaelle C. Solages continued this annual tradition to benefit the community members of the 22nd district. The distribution serves as a way to thank the community for their continued support and trust in the office of the 22nd assembly district and to give back to the community, especially during a time when people are experiencing the strain of inflationary economic conditions.
The Assemblymember provided the community with turkeys on two separate occasions. The primary distribution occurred on Monday, November 14, hosted at the 22nd District office, the member’s office partnered with the patrons of Green Acres Mall, a shopping center situated at the heart of Valley Stream. The distribution prioritized families who missed the opportunity to receive a turkey during the last giveaway in 2021.
Due to the overwhelming need for families this year, a second distribution evolved through a coordinated effort with multiple organizations, including the New York Islanders hockey team, Long Island Cares food bank, and Stew Leanords supermarket chain. Assemblymember Michaelle C. Solages provided a waiting list of constituents with a fresh turkey dinner on Monday, November 21, thanksgiving week. Constituents procured their holiday meal package at the newly constructed UBS arena, conveniently located in Elmont, NY.
