State Sen. Charles Fuschillo Jr. (R-Merrick) will partner with Hempstead Town Clerk Mark Bonilla and Supervisor Kate Murray in sponsoring the Senior ID Card program in Roosevelt.

The program will be held on Friday from noon to 3 p.m. at the Roosevelt Public Library, 27 W. Fulton Ave. 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 senior ID card includes a photo and the holder’s personal data, physician's contact information and emergency contact phone numbers, which could be useful to paramedics in a medical emergency. Allergies and other vital information can also be printed on the cards, officials.

For more information about the free senior ID program event, call Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630
