NEW YORK – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker teamed up with Janet Godfrey, the executive director at Operation Veronica, to host a military care package supply collection throughout the months of November and December. The supply drive collected over ten large boxes of snacks, magazines, books, and personal care products to send to our troops overseas.
“I would like to sincerely thank everyone who contributed to my military care package supply collection,” said Legislator Anker. “Operation Veronica is a wonderful organization that uses care packages as a means to show our military how much they are loved and appreciated.”
Operation Veronica is a not-for-profit veterans’ organization that collects supplies and sends care packages to our brave military men and women overseas. Volunteers at Operation Veronica meet every Friday to assemble care packages, sew neck warms, and create survival bracelets for our troops.
