FAMILY SERVICE LEAGUE & ISLAND HARVEST FOOD BANK
HOLIDAY MADE EXTRA SPECIAL WITH DONATIONS
OF TOYS & FOOD TO 1,500 CHILDREN IN-NEED
Family Service League is pleased to announce that over 1,500 children in the Mastic, Shirley and surrounding communities have received toys this holiday season at FSL’s William Floyd Family Center (WFFC) in partnership with the William Floyd School District (WFSD). Thanks to so many generous corporate and individual donors making donations to FSL’s Project TOY initiative, local families facing overwhelming financial stress have been given the gift of a brighter holiday for their children. In addition, a collaborative effort with Island Harvest Food Bank (Island Harvest), the region’s leading food bank, serving network of more than 400 nonprofit agencies, has provided over 80 families with a full turkey dinner complete with trimmings.
“Family Service League is proud to work with the William Floyd School District and Island Harvest to provide holiday toys and food for so many in-need. This is a wonderful collaboration and we are happy to have the opportunity to bring joy to families struggling under the burden of financial hardship. FSL is grateful for the thousands of corporate and individual donors, as well as our volunteers, that have supported our Project TOY program which will serve over 6,000 Long Island children this year.”
– Karen Boorshtein, FSL President & CEO
