HUNTINGTON, NY (January 9, 2020) – Food, toys, and gifts donated by colleagues from The Nature’s Bounty Co., a global leader in health and wellness, were a joyful holiday surprise for 100 local families participating in the Family Service League Healthy Families Suffolk Program. This generous gift was part of The Nature’s Bounty Foundation’s “We Give Back” employee initiative valued at over $10,000. The Nature’s Bounty Long Island headquarters provided boxes complete with grocery items and its employees purchased gifts from children’s wish lists to make the season brighter for families facing extreme financial hardships. FSL’s Healthy Families Program serves families in the communities of Brentwood, Bay Shore, Central Islip, Amityville, Copiague and Wyandanch. FSL, a Long Island based non-profit human service organization, has over 60 vital programs at 20 locations.
“Family Service League is proud to be working with The Nature’s Bounty Co. and its generous Long Island based employees. Their commitment to local children and families seamlessly supports FSL’s goals of providing emotional and educational based enrichment opportunities that promote health and well-being,” said Karen Boorshtein, FSL President & CEO. “Many of the families who benefit from FSL’s programs are facing overwhelming challenges. Thanks to this type of funding and care, FSL is able to offer a variety of services to support children and families.”
Over the past few years The Nature’s Bounty Co. and its charitable arm, The Nature’s Bounty Foundation, have provided various forms of much needed community support in partnership with FSL. This includes activities such as purchasing and building outdoor playground items for FSL’s Family Shelter, participating in the reading program at FSL’s Bay Shore Universal Pre-Kindergarten, and funding a nutrition program for teens at the Brentwood Community School (BCS) After-School Program. The Nature’s Bounty Foundation is a 501c3 dedicated to enhancing lives by supporting wellness initiatives within and beyond the communities the company serves through monetary grants, product donations, and volunteerism.
