How We Are Helping


Newsday Charities launched the Long Island COVID-19 Relief Fund on May 10, 2020 to help those Long Islanders most impacted by the virus. Our initial goal was $250,000. Within six weeks, thanks to the many generous Long Islanders who donated, we have exceeded our goal. In order to meet the increasing and future need of our neighbors, we are continuing to accept funds and have increased our goal to $350,000.
