Each year during the Holiday Season, Senator Nozzolio collects nonperishable items from the community to be sent to military personnel deployed overseas. As he did last year, Senator Nozzolio is once again working with several local leaders to expand the Holiday Drive, including New York State Assemblyman Bob Oaks, New York State Assemblyman Gary Finch and Webster Supervisor Ron Nesbitt.
“It is more important than ever that we recognize the contributions of our local soldiers and there is no better time than the holiday season to think of the troops defending our Nation overseas,” said Senator Nozzolio. “Our soldiers have left their family and friends and the comfort of their homes in order to serve a cause greater than themselves. Making a small donation and providing them with the little comforts from home is just one way that we can all say ‘thank you’.”
Nonperishable items such as snacks, gum, hard candy, instant coffee and dry-mix beverages such as iced tea and lemonade can be dropped off at the following locations:
  • Senator Nozzolio’s Office. 119 Fall Street, Seneca Falls;
  • Assemblyman Gary Finch’s Office. 69 South Street, Auburn;
  • Assemblyman Bob Oaks’ Office. 10 Leach Road, Lyons;
  • Supervisor Ron Nesbitt’s Office. 1000 Ridge Road, Webster.
Other personal items such as DVDs, stationary, pens and small articles of clothing like hats or socks are also welcome. Items can be dropped off through December 14th when Senator Nozzolio will send the items to our troops overseas.

Anyone who would like their donated items to be sent to a specific soldier from our region who is currently stationed overseas should contact Senator Nozzolio’s office with their serviceman or woman’s name and where they are stationed. Senator Nozzolio’s Seneca Falls office can be reached toll free at 1-888-568-9816 or by emailing nozzolio@nysenate.gov. You can also submit this information by contacting Senator Nozzolio through his Facebook page.
“As I travel throughout my District, I meet many families with loved ones serving abroad. I have learned from them how much it truly means to our soldiers to receive packages from home,” said Senator Nozzolio. “It is important that we support our brave servicemen and women and give thanks to them for what they do to protect our freedom. This annual drive is just one small way to do that.”
