THE BRONX - State Sen. Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) paid a special visit to a group of local senior citizens yesterday.

Residents at the Sue Gingberg Senior Center were surprised with $10 gift cards, sponsored by Access Health Care and the senator himself.

Diaz said the gift cards will help seniors pay for their Thanksgiving meals. He plans to give out 1,500 more cards at 23 centers in the next two weeks.
