Van Bramer Delivers Food To Veterans’ Shelter



New York City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer visited the Borden Avenue Veterans Residence (BAVR) in Long Island City to drop off thousands of items from his 6th Annual Holiday Food Drive. “The holidays are a great time to remember not just good times and cheer, but also a time to think about those who have less and may be struggling to put food on their tables,” said Van Bramer. “I would like to thank the hundreds of constituents who reached out to our office and so generously donated food to those in need this year.” Hundreds of local families and children donated thousands of canned goods and other non-perishable items at five branches of the Queens Library, the Ravenswood Senior Center and schools throughout western Queens. In this photo, Majority Leader Van Bramer is joined by Bruce Alston, Facility Manager at BAVR, Sophonna Cottle, Program Director at BAVR, and Kendell McLaurin, Maintenance Director at BAVR.
