The Central Nassau County Rotary Club featured former Rotary District Governor Kathy Gibson at their weekly meeting on Sept. 19. Gibson spoke to the club about the General Needs organization, which focuses on helping thousands of homeless Long Island veterans and their families through charitable donations and support.
Their organization’s mission is to focus on providing the basic necessities that are missing in the everyday lives of homeless veterans such as new clothing, footwear, blankets, winter coats and winter waterproof boots. The Central Nassau County Rotary Club has provided funding to General Needs in previous years. The club meets every Thursday at Venus Restaurant, at 546 Hempstead Ave., West Hempstead.
