Angelo Morinello Delivers Valentine's Day Cards - February 2020

NYS Assemblyman Angelo Morinello with GAC member Joann Greico.

    This Valentine's Day, Assemblyman Angelo Morinello (R,C,I,Ref-Niagara Falls) visited the Grand Island Golden Age Center and delivered Valentine’s Day cards, created by local elementary school students, to seniors. Eighteen local schools participated this year in creating over 1,200 valentines for his program. Cards have also been sent around the assemblyman’s district to assisted living facilities, meals on wheels sites and other senior centers. The deliveries mark the conclusion of Morinello’s annual “Valentines for Seniors” program. Many seniors are widowed or living alone and finding a special way to show some extra love on Valentine's Day makes a big difference.
    “I am proud of these caring and loving students who joined me this year in making Valentine’s Day special for so many people across the district,” said Morinello. “It’s fundamental we look out for one another, and spread love to those who are lonely on this holiday. Both the students and seniors get tremendous joy from these cards and I look forward to continuing this program for years to come.”
