Queens state senator joins Ridgewood youth activists for food and feminine product drive


State Senator Joseph Addabbo partnered with young community activists from Ridgewood to help support the Hungry Monk Rescue Truck with a food and feminine products drive. 

Addabbo will be opening his district offices as a drop-off spot for donations as part of Jacob Altamirano and his older sister Jamie Longo’s efforts. 

I have worked with both [Altamirano] and [Longo] in the past on donation drives, and I am proud to do so again on this initiative,” Addabbo said. “I am always impressed with their hard work in the community and their dedication to others, especially at such a young age. The Hungry Monk Rescue Truck is a valued resource for those facing food insecurity in our local communities and touches the lives of everyone it serves. I am happy to open my doors to help collect food for them.”
