LINDENHURST, NY, November 6, 2017: On Saturday, October 28, 2017, Legislator Kevin McCaffrey joined colleagues, friends and members of the community at the Lindenhurst Community Cares third annual Trunk or Treat event.
The purpose of the Trunk or Treat event is to keep young people involved in the local community by providing positive, family-friendly activities and to promote drug free lifestyles.
“Congratulations to Lindenhurst Community Cares on another very successful Trunk or Treat event at the Lindenhurst Village Gazebo,” said Legislator McCaffrey. “This is a great event by a great organization at the front lines of our community’s fight against the opioid epidemic.”
Lindenhurst Community Cares aims to influence the youth’s attitudes about drugs, build their self-esteem and drug resistance skills and reinforce these skills through mentoring relationships. They also work to provide safe places for youth after school and create a healthy educational forum for young people during school and summer. More information on the organization can be found on the Lindenhurst Community Cares website.
