The Save the Children Long Island Council was founded in 1984 by Susan Lassen and M.L. Galston in response to a devastating famine in Ethiopia. From the small luncheon party they hosted at the very beginning, the Council has gone on to raise approximately 5 million dollars in the following years, which were distributed to Save the Children programs worldwide. The Council is made up of a Working Board of about 25 volunteers and is aided by a group of Council Partners. We focus locally on fund raising, education and building awareness.

Save the Children gives children in the United States and around the world what every child deserves – a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When disaster strikes, we put children’s needs first.  We advocate for and achieve large-scale change for children. We save children’s lives. Join  us.
