When people think about how their lives are going to go, chances are they don’t envision themselves needing to visit a foodbank to provide basic meals for their families. But whether due to job loss, catastrophic illness, or other causes, that’s exactly the situation that thousands of Long Islanders found themselves in for the first time last year.
It’s a horrible thing to imagine, but the good news is that WE have the ability to help.
NYSUT is partnering with Long Island Cares to host a virtual food drive, and SWRTA is proud to be a part of it. Please contribute to help make a difference in the lives of our neighbors. 39% of Long Islanders who receive emergency food are children under 18 years old, and they need our help.
