North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman announced Thursday that local and federal officials have partnered to authorize the opening of Points of Distribution (POD) at various locations throughout the town.
Only food and water will be available at the POD, which are also equipped to distribute kosher Meals Ready to Eat (MRE).
The seven sites set up throughout North Hempstead are located at:
- Bunky Reid Park in Westbury
- Tully Park in New Hyde Park
- Roslyn LIRR Station
- Port Washington LIRR Station
- Manhasset High School
- Great Neck North High School
- Great Neck South High School
Distribution begins Friday, 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
The POD works like this:
Upon arrival at the POD site, residents, from inside or outside the Town, will be asked to provide the official in charge their names, town of residence and number of people in their immediate family.
They will then be provided with water and MRE's, enough to last three days.
Call 311 for more information.
