Upcoming Charity Events: Give Back to the Long Island Community

Written by Eric Anderson  |  07. February 2015

Most Long Islanders are fortunate enough to live secure and stable lives. However we should all take time to give back to those that are less-fortunate.
 
There are a lot of opportunities to give back by taking part in different charity events that benefit both local, national and worldwide causes.
 
It isn’t very difficult to find ways to benefit your community. While many of these events are looking for volunteers to help put them together, it’s also fine to just show up and make a donation.
 
Be sure to follow the links for each event for more information.
