Free: Pre- and postnatal vitamins (Jackson Hts/Rego Pk/Elmhurst) Gifted 219d - 4 sealed cap bottles (for the most part) of pre- and postnatal multivitamin. Caps are child-proof. A neighbor received this from the food pantry, not knowing what this was (hence, the 1 bottle out of the box). She was also not given a choice whether she wanted this or not. Take one, some, or all. Hoping someone can use it, not sell it. All have the same January 2023 expiration. Please examine and review pics for each side of the box. I’m on a semi-staycation for the next 2 weeks. There may be one day in the coming week where I will travel through the R train into downtown Bk (don’t know when that will be, but there will be communication involved). For tomorrow—Saturday—I can meet up in Fresh Meadows around Kohls, should anyone who is in that vicinity want these.
