The Strength of Long Island


No act of kindness is too small. Long Islanders, we can proudly say that there are many dedicated and generous people who are always putting their community’s needs first. And though these past few months have been brand new territory for us all, there are still many local heroes that found a way to contribute. Here are some you should know about:


Mateo Solis

For Mateo’s 10th birthday, he decided that instead of gifts he wanted to start a fundraising campaign for those affected by the coronavirus. His family helped decorate their front lawn in celebratory decor, and he set up his booth for donations. He ended up raising around $1,109.14 in donations — a birthday well spent!



The Watson Family

This family of five made sure that there was enough food for everyone to go around. Amy Watson, who works at the Locust Valley Central School District, knew first hand how difficult it was for some families who relied on daily school meals. And so, a food drive was created, and she and her family gave meals to those in need all over the island.


The Cooper Sisters

There’s nothing sweeter than receiving letters from those who know how to brighten your day. Abigail and Emma Cooper worked day and night decorating cards and writing letters. Since nursing homes weren't allowed to have visitors, the sisters sent the messages to the Acadia Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Riverhead. Their letters made all the difference for the residents there!


The Greenport Community

It is hard for those in quarantine to get the necessary supplies they need at home. Penelope Rudder understands just that and gathered a group of residents in Greenport to help deliver groceries and more to those who could not leave their homes. The community was very grateful!


From the individual to an entire community, anything can be done through perseverance and compassion. We are Long Island Strong!
