H.A.V.E. Heart Campaign

Ms. New York Senior America has started the H.A.V.E. Heart Campaign ( H.A.V.E. stands for Honor A Veteran Everyday), for 2019. It was kicked off in December of 2018, honoring a woman, Marine Corps Veteran., Lisa DeStefano. Seniors definitely have heart when it comes to giving back in their communities, and doing meaningful charity work all over Long Island  and New York State year round. On December 22, 2018, the women of Ms. New York Senior America went to Lisa’s house for a special ceremony, presenting gifts,and granting  holiday wishes to Lisa and her 10 year old daughter. The afternoon was filled with entertainment, good cheer, fun and and a commemorative banner thanking her for her service . We hope to encourage others to Honor a Veteran everyday with acts of acknowledgement, honor, respect, and appreciation to all military personnel with unlimited gratitude for their service to our country. Ms.New York Senior America has plans to honor Veterans throughout the year with a Spring, and Fall event already planned. It is our mission to brighten the lives of Seniors and Veterans, and celebrate their life with Honor.

We salute and honor Senior Women! Women who have reached the age of 60, with their knowledge and life experience, are the foundation of our society.
