147th District NYS Assemblyman David DiPietro is sponsoring a Secret Santa Christmas Drive for Seniors who have been in isolation in nursing homes without human family contact in almost a year.
“We want them to know that they are NOT forgotten,” said DiPietro. ” We are fighting for them out here and we want them to know that they are valuable and that we love them.”
Because of Covid 19 Restrictions, nursing home residents are not allowed to leave, nor are they allowed to have any visitors including immediate family members. This has been devastating to many residents as they are left languishing alone without their loved ones near them. Mr. DiPietro wants to cheer them up and let them know that we are all thinking of them and want them to have a nice Christmas, despite Covid 19.
