The Williston Park Library is again partnering with LI Cares/16th Assembly District’s Legislative annual pet drive. The drive, which will run during the month of April, will help local soup kitchens and food pantries meet the needs of struggling families with pets. The most needed items are bags of dry dog and cat food, canned dog and cat food, cat box litter, treats, and toys. All food must be unopened and in its original packaging.
A donation box will be available inside the Library. Thank you for your support.
