Holiday traditions are important for families and children. There are several ways to enjoy holiday traditions and protect your health. Because many generations tend to gather to celebrate holidays, the best way to minimize COVID-19 risk and keep your family and friends safer is to get vaccinated if you’re eligible.

OCTOBER CARE & COMPASSION CHARITY DRIVE
During the month of October, Floral Park's Care and Compassion Committee is organizing a charity drive for MOMS OC. MOMS OC provides free access to re-natal care, health screening, health education and referral services through monthly visits and group classes. Over two weekends, Friday through Sunday October 15-17 and October 22-24 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, we will be collecting items to help MOMS OC in the important work that they do in our community.
The most requested item is the Evenflo Tribute LX Harness Convertible Car Seat. If you're purchasing a car seat through Amazon, be sure to do it through their Smile program with Floral Park as your charity of choice so that the neighborhood receives a donation from your purchase.
