Long Island Fringe Festival “5” symbolizes what we can all do to help feel validated and take control of what we can to improve quality of life for us and all around us; Giving back to organizations that give every day. Five simple things everyone can do – Find your area of interest, volunteer your time, make donations of goods or services, share information and show support by attending events. Whether it’s becoming more “green”, improving the environment, stepping up for animal rights or volunteering at a local food bank, we hope to shine the light, once again, to raise awareness to a cause or issue.
