WHAT WE DO
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
