The New York Islanders recently donated $4,371 to EAC Network as a part of the New York Islanders Hockey With a Heart Program, which helps bring local charities and organizations to fans directly. The game put a spotlight on the good work and mission of EAC Network while raising much needed support for our organization through a sold-out game!
The Huntington Charity Workshop, which is part of the Huntington Senior Center, recently donated tons of hand-made comfort blankets, hats, and sweaters to give to the children who come to our Child Advocacy Center. Represented by Barbara M., Coordinator of the Huntington Charity Workshop, the seniors spend countless hours all year long to create the hand-made items, which provide comfort and ease to our children during a traumatic time period of their lives.
EAC Network’s Nutrition Education & Food Services teammates, Estefani DeVargas and Rosella Fuscaldo, glammed it up with MAC Volunteers on World AIDS Day.

During National Caregivers month, our In-Home Respite Services hosted a luncheon to recognize and honor our caregivers, including Town of North Hempstead District 1 Councilwoman Vivianna Russell (left) and Pauline Feldman (right).
