Dear Friends,
Do you believe that children are our future? Then Save the Children Long Island Council is an organization you will want to prioritize this giving season.
Save the Children Long Island Council was founded 40 years ago by Sooky Lassen and M.L. Galston, two Long Island women who believed that by working together to raise awareness, our community would want to help children and families less fortunate. They chose to ally with Save the Children because they knew it was a trustworthy organization dedicated to alleviating the suffering of children since 1919.
Over the past 40 years, with your support, we have raised over $7.4 million, changing the lives of thousands of children for the better. Thank you!
At the heart of Save the Children’s work since the beginning has been their belief that every child, everywhere, deserves a future. By investing in their mission, you drive their commitment to go where they are needed most to uphold children’s rights to a healthy start in life, a quality education and a safe, nurturing environment.
In recent years, the scale of crises around the world has increased exponentially. We have witnessed children endangered by conflict, climate disasters, pandemic and hunger. Save the Children needs partners like us more than ever, to help them provide life-saving and life-changing support to the hardest to reach kids living in the hardest places. 

We hope the new year will bring a chance for recovery, better opportunities for children and peace. Please give what you can to create a brighter future for all.
