Holiday For Kids’ Sake 2018

Thanks to the generosity of over 300 companies and individuals, BBBSLI’s 2018 Holiday for Kids’ Sake program created magic for 500 children across Long Island! Sponsors purchased specific items from each child’s wish list along with many other gifts based on their age and interests.

Special thanks to Dantona Industries, Inc. for sponsoring food for all the families. We were fortunate to have 100 volunteers who helped sort, pack and wrap gifts and 55 volunteer drivers, along with their family and friends, who delivered food and gifts to families across Long Island. Thank you to everyone who made Holiday for Kids’ Sake 2018 a success!
