Dear  EAC Network Supporter,

At the end of last month, EAC Network celebrated its 50th year of service to our local community. Honoring the Commissioner of the Nassau County Police Department, Patrick J. Ryder, and the Commissioner of the Suffolk County Police Department, Geraldine Hart, recognizing our founders and special guest Katie Beers, and joined by friends, supporters, sponsors, Board, staff, volunteers, and more, we couldn't be more grateful for your help in making it this far. Thank you for 50 years, and here's to the next 50!

We are so grateful to our companions who give full-time caregivers much-needed time off!

MAC Volunteers Glam Up Food Pantry

Our Nutrition Education & Food Services teammates, Estefani DeVargas and Rosella Fuscaldo, glammed it up with MAC volunteers on World AIDS Day. For the 9th year, our friends at MAC cosmetics turned our food pantry from drab to glam. We can’t thank them enough for sharing their love on this special day!

Huntington Charity Workshop 2 12-5-19-1

Seniors Craft Blankets for Child Survivors

The Huntington Charity Workshop, which is part of the Huntington Senior Center, recently donated tons of hand-made comfort blankets, hats, and sweaters to give to the children who come to our Child Advocacy Center. Represented by Barbara M., Coordinator of the Huntington Charity Workshop, the seniors spend countless hours all year long to create the hand-made items, which provide comfort and ease to our children during a traumatic time period of their lives.

Kids Enjoy Holiday Shopping Spree 

Thanks to Bethpage Federal Credit Union and the Target Foundation, 100 of our children spent $100 each on themselves. The event benefited children from our Chance to Advance program, which provides enrichment programs that help develop the educational, artistic, athletic, and cultural talents of children in foster care ages 8 to 21, as well as from other programs. Volunteers accompanied the youth around the store to help them pick out items from their wishlists.
