Long Island Volunteer Center Holds Book & School Supplies Drive to Help Local Schools Hit by Super Storm Sandy

The Long Island Volunteer Center (LIVC) is hosting a week-long Book and School Supply Drive at the Long Island Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (LIVOAD) Volunteer Recovery Center located at 175 Central Avenue South in Bethpage.  Donations will be accepted from Saturday, January 19 to Friday, January 25 between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.   The Drive commemorates MLK Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  

Donations of new books and basic school supplies are needed by local school districts on the South Shore of Long Island impacted by Super Storm Sandy.  In addition to the drop off location, The Long Beach School District has created a Wish List of needed items on Amazon.com.  A tax deductible donation can be sent directly to the Long Beach School District through this link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/search.html/ref=cm_gift_wl_teaser?type=wishlist&field-lastname=&field-firstname=&_po_type=wishlist&field-name=lbny&x=0&y=0  

“As Dr. King asked Americans to bridge our differences and come together in unity, LIVC is asking our fellow Long Islanders to help replenish items destroyed by Super Storm Sandy so that our schools can continue to provide quality education for our children,” said Diana O’Neill, Executive Director of LIVC. “Following Sandy, Long Islanders face a unique opportunity to unite in volunteer service and do what we do best – lend a hand, help our neighbors and become a stronger, better community as a result.”
