Abrahams organizes a collection of baby formula | Herald Community Newspapers

As local families struggle to manage the impacts of a nationwide formula shortage, Nassau County Legislator Kevan M. Abrahams (D-Freeport) has partnered with Baldwin Public Libraries, Hempstead, Freeport, East Meadow, Roosevelt and Uniondale to launch a baby formula drive on Monday, May 23.

All donations will be distributed to Long Island Cares to help families struggling amid the nationwide supply shortage that was triggered by a major recall of Abbott Nutrition products.

“While I am relieved that the Defense Production Act has been activated to produce formula and an agreement has been reached to reopen Abbott Nutrition’s formula factory under federal supervision, it should take several weeks to fully return to normal, and many local families need our help right now,” said lawmaker Abrahams. “Through this partnership with our local libraries, I hope we can provide our residents with the peace of mind they deserve.”

For more information, contact Legislator Abrahams’ office at 516-571-2455 or kabrahams@nassaucountyny.gov.
