Even as the coronavirus pandemic took hold bringing additional unemployment, food insecurity and instability to our community, many generous Long Islanders stepped up to help their neighbors in need donating $312,166 to the Newsday Charities Long Island COVID-19 Relief Fund. Newsday pays administrative cost, so 100% of the money raised will be granted to local nonprofit agencies that are providing critical services to help sustain Long Islanders who have been impacted by this crisis.
Newsday Charities helps create a better tomorrow.
People in crisis may not always be recognizable. Thousands of Long Island children and families struggle with hunger, homelessness, abuse and the lack of a proper education. We’re working to change that.
Who We Are
Newsday Charities is committed to improving the lives of disadvantaged Long Islanders. Grants are made to local nonprofit organizations that provide vital programs in the areas of hunger, housing, youth education and child abuse prevention/treatment. Funds are raised through two public campaigns – Kids Campaign and Help-A-Family.
The Help-A-Family campaign is committed to improving the lives of Long Island’s at-risk children and families. Your gift will help provide nutritious meals, stable housing, youth educational opportunities and a haven from abuse.
Kids Campaign supports local nonprofit agencies that provide aid to vulnerable kids and their families. Our goal is that all Long Island children have a safe and stable place to call home, receive a proper education and never go to bed hungry.
