Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) donated 75 bags of sheets to local non-profit United Veterans Beacon House (UVBH) on December 23, 2018. The donation was made in collaboration with two other local organizations, the Lindenhurst Rotary Club and the Christina Renna Foundation.
UVBH serves veterans across Long Island, providing shelters, counseling, case management, transportation, and other services to over 550 residents in 36 different locations each year. CSHL’s donated sheets were distributed to veterans living both in and outside of UVBH shelters, in advance of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
“We were able to bring together these organizations dedicated to helping the community,” said Philip Renna, Director of the Christina Renna Foundation and Director of Operations in Public Affairs at CSHL. “Our efforts made sure local veterans got important necessities for the holidays.”
