Long Island has been pretty hard hit in recent years, leaving many in unexpected and challenging situations.
If that's where you find yourself right now, please know we understand.
We care about you and your family, and want to help alleviate some of your pressure, stress, and expenses
through the delivery of non-food essentials.
Here's how it works...
After you contact us (there's a short form below for you to use), we will call you for an intake interview. Once accepted as a client, we will take your first order of requested items, which will be brought to you at the next available scheduled delivery date.
Once a month, you can place a new order. The Existing Clients page has an online form you can use for this. You can also provide your list to us over the phone, via text, or email—you could even take a photo of your handwritten list and text that through to us.
Our delivery schedules vary based on weather and availability of volunteers. We will text or call you to let you know potential delivery dates, and make arrangements with you. For your first delivery, we would like some time to visit with you and get to know you. For all future deliveries, we are happy to leave your order in a specified safe place if no one is home to receive it.
Right now, our delivery area is limited to Suffolk County. Our services are intended to provide short-term assistance, so every six months we will reevaluate your situation and the needed services.
Can we lend you a hand right now?
