It's a great day for area veterans and it is once again being made possible through the generosity some of those who serve.
Massapequa Cares, is an annual event at the Northport Veterans Hospital. Veterans receive care package and are entertained by a USO style show.
This year's event will be on April 6, and as always, VFW Post 7763 made a donation to Massapequa Cares at a Massapequa Park Village Board Meeting.
Bill Colfer, who heads up the organization said that donations have fallen off in recent years and urged residents to contribute, saying the organization, "takes care of veterans. That's its sole purpose."
Massapequa Park Mayor James Altadonna praised the event.
"It says to all the men and women who serve, that they're not forgotten, that this is truly a community that cares," Altadonna said.
