Huntington Station, NY - May 8, 2017 - Assemblyman Chad A. Lupinacci (R,C,I-South Huntington) recently attended The Opening Word’s 25th Annual Gala. The Opening Word Program is a literacy program that teaches the English language and job readiness skills to immigrant women throughout Long Island, and is headquartered in Wyandanch. The program also hosts workshops at St. Hugh of Lincoln Roman Catholic Church in Huntington Station.
Lupinacci, a parishioner of St. Hugh of Lincoln, has been a longtime supporter of the program. He also attends their graduation ceremonies each June.
“The Opening Word Program has expanded the educational and professional horizons of so many immigrant women by offering language services to those individuals who are often underserved, undereducated or underemployed,” said Lupinacci. “This program is a perfect example of how a group of individuals with a collective will to do good can change their community for the better.”
Assemblyman Lupinacci represents the 10th District, which consists of parts of Suffolk County. For more information, please visit Assemblyman Lupinacci’s Official Website.
