On April 2, TLC’s Long Island Medium aired an episode entitled “Victoria’s Test” that featured EAC Network’s very own Meals on Wheels program, from meal preparation to delivery.
Our Senior Centers provide participants with a hot lunch as well as fun activities like Zumba, bingo, board games, karaoke, and crafts. Occasionally, we have generous volunteers who team up with our Senior Centers to host a special craft, which is exactly what a team from PSEG Long Island did recently. PSEG has a long history of community outreach, and we’re always pleased to have their cheerful, supportive volunteers.
Twice a week, seniors who participate in the program receive their meals for the week. They no longer have to worry about rides to the grocery store. They won’t need to wonder whether they have the budget for groceries this week. And they no longer need to cook, worry about injuring themselves while cooking, or worry they won’t have the strength to cook.
Erinn Hayes, star of CBS’ latest hit sitcom, Kevin Can Wait, made an inspirational video rallying fans to donate to EAC Network for their end of year giving campaign. The cast and crew of Kevin Can Wait is dedicated to making Long Island a better place by filming in Bethpage and promoting locals on the show. We are so grateful they have chosen us as the beneficiary of the show’s first giving campaign!
Five volunteers from Davidson, Maneri & Associates, a private practice of Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., rolled up their sleeves to organize our food pantry, which provides nutritious food for people living with HIV/AIDS through our Nutrition Education and Food Services program.
