WHAT WE DO

BLESSING BOXES

Each week Branches Long Island packs Blessing Boxes with food and other essential items. Our volunteers distribute these boxes to those in need throughout our community. Branches is currently distributing 20+large boxes each and every week.

Community Outreach

The Branches Long Island Community Group is connecting community members who have items they are willing to donate with people in need. We currently have over 4000 members working together to ensure no one in our community goes in need.

Food Pantry

We have a fully stocked pantry at our new location and rely on donations from the community. We provide baby items such as diapers and formula along as all non perishable items and toiletries.

A short application is required for pantry access. The pantry is open by appointment only. Contact us for more information.

Blessing Bags

Each Winter and Spring the volunteers of Branches Long Island collect items for those homeless on Long Island. Each bag contains hygiene items along with snacks, a sandwich, drinks, gloves, hat, scarf and words of encouragement or pictures from our younger volunteers. Volunteers then drive around and distribute to those in need.

Holiday Assistance

Each holiday Branches Long Island makes sure no family goes without. Whether it be back to school supplies, Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving meals, Christmas gifts or Easter Baskets, they are dedicated to make sure that during these times children will never experience the feeling of missing out. There is a new application for each holiday and is usually released or posted two months prior to give plenty of families time to plan ahead.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Branches Long Island goes above and beyond to help the children and families of LI. They are always thinking of new ways to help- whether it be weekly food deliveries, holiday gifts, Easter baskets, blessing bags for the occupants in the homeless shelters… the list goes on. So many amazing team “angels”

Joanne

Branches helped me when no one else would. I didn’t no where to turn to get assistance and and they stepped up to the plate: making sure i had formula and diapers for my daughter, making sure my toddler has snacks and juice the little things that make a child smile, and gave me peace of mind. Extremely caring – they make you feel like family. This place needs to featured on news 12 to get the credit and recognition they deserve.

Kara

An amazing group run by some amazing people who truly care. They go above and beyond to help those in need of assistance and they make it so easy for those who want to donate and give back to get involved. Thank you for all you do and for allowing us to be apart of it!
