Our Long Island chapter just started in December and we have already our first Unified Promise! Our membership continues to grow and that gives us an even a greater opportunity to make an impact in the Long Island area. Check out the charitable promises we have worked on below, but know that the excitement and our true impact is ahead of us!
Dinner with Our Newest Neighbors: Welcoming Refugee Families
Refugee children and families have lost everything they know, love, and need to survive and thrive. While the reasons and the regions may vary, the story and desperation are the same. All refugees are seeking safety, freedom, and the chance to reclaim futures for themselves and their families.
For our December Unified Promise, we had the opportunity to host a dinner party at the offices of our partner nonprofit organization, Central American Refugee Center (CARECEN). CARECEN’s mission is to assist the immigrant community on Long Island in its effort to become full participants in the community's life. CARECEN is the leading organization of its kind in Nassau and Suffolk counties and has served the community for over 30 years.
