Once again our incredible friends from MAC Cosmetics came to the rescue of our food pantry for people living with HIV/AIDS in Nassau County. Quick as super heroes, they unloaded a truck stuffed with cases and cases of nutritious food. Three hours of unpacking/labeling food and stocking shelves later, they were gone, leaving the pantry filled to the brim. Thank you, MAC volunteers!
EAC Network’s best-interest child advocacy took another step forward recently when Suffolk Family Court Judge Chris Ann Kelley administered the oath of service to new Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers who successfully completed a rigorous 30-hour training program. This more than doubles the Suffolk program size!
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.
