We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Long Island Cares. Long Island Cares was founded as the first food bank on Long Island in 1980 by the late singer, Grammy Award-winning songwriter and social activist Harry Chapin. The organization now provides nutritional food and support services for a network of more than 580 community-based member agencies, including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, child care programs, disability organizations, veterans’ services programs and more.
In the first, of what we hope will be many successful future collaborations, LI Cares donated brand-new, size-specific-coats to each of the 73 students of Anna House. The coats were distributed during the bitter cold spell of early January and could not have come at a better time.
BCCA thanks Councilwoman Erin King Sweeney for helping us connect with this amazing organization!
