Glen Cove residents who want to share their love with those in need this Valentine’s Day can participate in the North Shore Sheltering Program’s “Shelter Your Love” gift card collection drive. Residents, local businesses and organizations can donate $5 gift cards to Glen Cove coffee shops, fast food restaurants, drug stores, supermarkets and retailers. The cards will be donated to clients of the program and gift cards ($5 denomination only) can be dropped off in a collection box located in front of the information window at Glen Cove’s City Hall or mailed to Shelter Your Love c/o Glen Cove City Hall, 9 Glen St., Glen Cove, NY, 11542. Donations will be accepted through Valentine’s Day.
“People in Glen Cove and surrounding areas have been asking us how they can provide assistance to the North Shore Sheltering Program,” said Cantor Gustavo Gitlin, program organizer. “While the community has been so generous in donating meals and necessities to our clients, I know our clients would appreciate a small gift card to enjoy a hot cup of coffee, a lunch sandwich or to purchase essentials like toothpaste and socks.”
