“What Are You Doing for Others?”

On a day to day basis, what are we doing for others? Do we take the time to volunteer? Do we donate time, goods, or funds as much as we should? It’s not that we don’t want to—life is just so busy that we forget, or think we don’t have the time.

December 1 is World AIDS Day!

Every year we recognize World AIDS day on December 1. It’s a day to spread awareness of HIV/AIDS, and to recognize those who have passed away. Volunteers from M.A.C. Cosmetics came to EAC Network to help at Nutrition Education & Food Services, which improves the lives of individuals living with HIV/AIDS.

PSEG Long Island Cares About Local Seniors

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.

The Caregiver’s Champion

Being a caregiver is a full-time job. Those who support their elderly family members do so at a cost to their personal lives and health. Our In-Home Respite Services program provides in-home companions to relieve caregivers and give them some time-off.
