Hempstead, NY - December 1, 2016 - EAC Network and Chipotle Mexican Grill partnered to raise nearly $1,000 through a Long Island wide fundraiser on Friday, November 18th.

Chipotle hosted the all-day event in which hungry customers who either presented the event flyer or mentioned the fundraiser had 50% of their food purchase donated back to EAC Network. Each of Chipotles Long Island restaurants, as well as several Queens locations, participated.

“EAC Network is thrilled that so many people participated in our Chipotle fundraising event,” said Lance W. Elder, President & CEO. “We’re grateful to Chipotle for their generosity and to the members of our community who got involved to help make a difference.”

The funds donated back from Chipotle will benefit the human service programs most in need that care for severely at-risk populations.
