Huntington Bay Resident Named President of Long Island Cares Board

David Herold, a resident of Huntington Bay, has been named president of the board of directors for Long Island Cares.

Herold has been a member of the board since 2009, and in 2019 received the group’s Harry Chapin Humanitarian Award.

“Around Thanksgiving in 2006, I read an article on food insecurity and its impact on Long Island’s children,” Herold said. “Moved by the heartbreaking statistics, I contacted Long Island Cares, asking how I could help. The following year started my engagement with the organization. Never would I have imagined that journey would lead to the position of president of its board of directors. I am humbled and honored by the board’s trust in my abilities, and I am inspired daily by the hard work of Long Island Cares’ employees and volunteers. I only hope to live up to the example set by past board presidents and, of course, our founder Harry Chapin.”

He is a partner at the law firm of Certilman Balin Adler & Hyman, LLP in East Meadow, where he co-chairs the Banking and Commercial Lending Department and serves on the firm’s executive committee.  He also sits on the board of The Real Estate Institute of Stony Brook University.
