Sen. Charles J. Fuschillo Jr. (R-Merrick) will partner with Town of Hempstead clerk Mark Bonilla and Supervisor Kate Murray to sponsor a free senior ID card program event on Monday in North Bellmore.

The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. at the North Bellmore Library (1551 Newbridge Rd.). All Town of Hempstead residents ages 60 and over are eligible to participate and receive a free senior ID card, officials said.

The wallet-sized ID card includes a photo and the holder’s personal data, physician’s contact information, and emergency contact phone numbers that could be useful to paramedics in a medical emergency. Allergies and other vital information can also be printed on the cards, officials said.

For more information, call Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
