Purpose

The Safe Center of Long Island and their highly trained and compassionate staff offers social services including counseling, housing and more to victims of abuse and their non-offending family members. Each year The Safe Center of Long Island holds a school supply drive to help those families who are recovering from traumatic experiences and are in need of assistance.  This year it is my pleasure to partner with them and sponsor a School Supply Drive to support their efforts. Over the next few weeks I will be collecting new school supplies which will be distributed to families in need through The Safe Center of Long Island’s program.
