Newsday Charities Help-A-Family

The holiday season is fast approaching. For many on Long Island, however, this joyous season only serves to underscore the difficulties they face every day.

While it might not always be obvious, a growing number of Long Islanders struggle each day...

A young girl can’t concentrate on her schoolwork with her stomach grumbling. Her last meal was yesterday’s free lunch at school.

A teenage boy struggles to stay focused in school. He’s too worried about where his family is going to sleep tonight.

Newsday Charities, a McCormick Foundation Fund, is committed to helping improve the lives of Long Island's at-risk children and families. You can make the commitment too. The McCormick Foundation will match your gift at fifty cents on the dollar. That means your donation of $20 becomes $30; $100 becomes $150.

In addition, Newsday and the Foundation pay all administrative expenses, ensuring that 100% of your gift, plus the match, goes to support local nonprofit agencies with vital programs that:

  • NOURISH those who experience hunger
  • HOUSE families and individuals in need of a permanent home
  • PROTECT children and families suffering from abuse
  • EDUCATE children and youth to put them on a path to success

A growing number of children and families are counting on us, so we hope we can count on you. To make a contribution, donate online or print a donation form.
