Family Service League recently announced that they raised $27,000 in donations just in one day.
The donations came from Whole Foods Market Long Island during their “Community Giving Day,” a program that gives five percent of all net sales generated on April 18.
Four Whole Foods Markets participated including the new Commack location.
“FSL will be utilizing the Whole Foods Market’s donation to continue its efforts of encouraging overall healthy life-style choices and the importance of good nutrition for the thousands of community children and adults who rely on FSL for critical services,” said Karen Boorshtein, FSL President and CEO.
Family Service League is a non-profit human service organization providing a safety net for people in need, reaching 50,000 people annually with 60 programs and 20 locations throughout Long Island.
The funds raised from Whole Foods will help enhance community gardens at FSL Family Shelter locations, expand the FSL Brentwood Community School After-School Cooking Program, as well as the FSL Manor Field Family Center will expand its children’s summer lunch program.
