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.
Chipotle hosted a fundraiser for us on November 18th in which every person who ate at a Chipotle on Long Island and mentioned EAC Network saw 50% of their purchase donated back to us. We are so grateful to everyone who participated. The event resulted in Chipotle donating almost $1,000! Click through to view photos.
Last Monday, December 5th, was Volunteer Day – a time to come together and make a difference. This year volunteers got together at our Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center to create holiday cards for our kids. Our children’s programs serve at-risk youth that usually struggle this time of year. We wanted to give them some holiday cheer and hope these cards will let them know that they are loved.
