Persaud to hold Annual
Senior Resource Day
By Nelson A. King
Brooklyn Sen. Roxanne J. Persaud
says she will hold her 2019 Annual
Senior Resource Day next Thursday,
The Guyanese-born legislator, who
represents the 19th Senatorial District
in Brooklyn, said the event is “for seniors
to get to know other seniors in
the community and receive important
information and resources.”
She said the 2019 Annual Senior
Resource Day, held in partnership with
Sunrise Adult Health Care Center and
Millennium Development, takes place
from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at her
District Office, 1222 E, 96th St., in the
Canarsie section of Brooklyn.
“It is free and open to everyone,”
Persaud said, stating that, last year, the
event drew a large crowd and featured
fun activities, like raffles and dancing.
She said representatives from dozens
of city and state agencies attended last
“It is not always easy to meet the
needs of constituents,” Persaud said.
“However, I visit and interact with my
seniors at their senior centers and place
of worship; or, my office informs me of
their unique needs and concerns.

“It feels gratifying to hear them say
that they are looking forward to next
year,” she added. “I feel a sense of duty
to ensure that I allocate more resources
so that our active adults continue to
enjoy the benefits they deserve.”
