Forty years ago Harry Chapin and Bill Ayres started an organization to fight hunger and help the needy. Today, The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) continues their efforts on behalf of Long Islanders in need. Local children who go to bed hungry every night, seniors who subsist on one meal a day, homeless veterans who don’t know where their next meal is coming from or where they’ll sleep tonight.
Last year, The INN provided over 400,000 meals to hungry men, women, and children on Long Island. It also provides shelter to more than 1900 families in its emergency shelters and long term housing sites, and guidance and support for families in distress.
The INN never turns anyone away and never charges for its services. How does it do it? It starts with 2,000 volunteers who give their time and energy day after day. It starts with generous people like you, who donate the money to help provide the meals, the shelters, the clothing, the food pantry, the social workers and support services.
If you’ve had some blessings in your life, please consider sharing them with those who haven’t been as fortunate. Your donation, in whatever amount you can afford, has the power to change someone’s life for the better—to give hope to those who need it most.
Donations may be sent to: Dave Golbert, 7 Lee Court West, Great Neck, NY. 11024 Please make your check payable to: The INN. As the sages remind us: “Blessed are those who share with those who have less.”
