Council Member Joseph C. Borelli (R-South Shore) is partnering with the New York City Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS) to offer dedicated office hours this Wednesday, March 29, from 2pm to 5pm in honor of Vietnam Veterans Day. The satellite office hours at Borelli’s office will allow the Council Member’s constituents to access DVS services without needing to travel to the DVS office in St. George.
During this event, veterans can come to Borelli’s district office to meet with representatives from the Department of Veterans’ Services for assistance with obtaining benefits, accessing education and career resources, and to address issues related to other city matters with Borelli’s staff.
Time and space are limited, so it is recommended that those interested in participating contact Borelli’s office by phone at (718) 984-5151 to reserve an appointment.
“This will be our first satellite office partnership with DVS and I’m very excited to be able to provide access to these resources through my office on the south shore and save my constituents a trip across the island” said Borelli. “I’d like to thank all of our veterans for their service to our nation, and I encourage them to visit my office during this event or at any other time; my door is always open.”
“The Department of Veterans’ Services is excited to partner with Council Member Borelli’s office in order to bring resources and services to the south shore of Staten Island,” said Matt Basile of New York City Department of Veterans’ Services.
