Brighton Beach

Three boxes of chocolates to the students of PS 253 in Brighton Beach for traveling with members of the United War Veterans Council on its Valentine’s Day Caravan event. The caring kids visited veterans at the St. Albans Community Living Center in Queens on Feb. 15.

Children in the fourth and fifth grades took a break from reading, writing, and arithmetic and delivered cards; gifts bags containing candy and toiletries that were collected by members of the council, schools, churches, corporations, and other organization; and some cheer to our veterans.

Members of the council, the students, the residents, and family members were all treated to music by songstress Michelle Della Fave.

The Council, with offices in Manhattan, has organized the Valentine’s Day Caravan for the past 10 years and has delivered cheers to veterans and their families at VA hospitals and military bases throughout New York City.

PS 253 [601 Ocean View Ave. at Brighton Sixth Street in Brighton Beach, (718) 332–3331].
