Newsday Charities Kids Campaign

Summer is a time for kids to play, relax and have fun! For far too many at-risk Long Island kids, summer brings uncertainty. Without the structure of school, many kids don't have a safe place to go. They lose access to meal programs. The educational gains they made over the past year slip away.

Newsday Charities, a McCormick Foundation Fund, wants to make sure that at-risk kids receive the educational, emotional and social support they need to keep them learning, safe and cared for during the summer months and throughout the year -- but we need your help!

Your gift to the Kids Campaign goes even further. The McCormick Foundation matches every dollar donated at 50 cents. Plus, 100% of your gift, and the match, will go to agencies serving Long Island's neediest kids.

Please join your friends and neighbors in caring for needy children right here on Long Island. For more information call 631-843-3056.

A growing number of children are counting on us, so we hope we can count on you. You can make a difference in the lives of Long Island's most vulnerable children.
